Craig Cooper

Volunteer On-air Host

Every Thursday, 10AM - Noon

Craig has been a regular volunteer DJ at KPCW since 1995 and a Park City area resident since 1985 - when volunteers had to get an FCC license to be on the air. One thing he is proud of - and he admits, he's not proud of much - are his volunteering ties: he's be active for decades in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, the Lion Club International (where he is now District Governor-elect of Northern Utah), the Peace House, Friends of Animals and the Make A Wish Foundation.

The Honorable Joseph Preston President of Lions Club International, 1.35 million members, meets with Craig Cooper (R), President of the Park City Lions Club, with somewhat fewer members.

When he's not giving his time away, he is a personal financial representative for Allstate Insurance, and his sweet work balcony - looking over Main Street, Park City - has been home base for the KPCW broadcast of the July 4th parade since forever.  

His musical tastes land just about everywhere on the spectrum - from the alt country sounds of Steve Earl to the gospel vibrations of Aretha Franklin to the textured music of Pink Floyd. On the air, he favors singer-songwriters, and especially up-and-coming songs that might surprise and delight. He loves to create a groove during his show, so don't call in with a request for Madonna, Lady Gaga or Adele.
