Bob White//East Bay Oldies Bob White worked in radio as a disc jockey, newsman, and music director, while also writing hundreds of radio ads. Leaving the airwaves led to more copywriting work, in addition to performing market research studies for broadcasting groups. Eventually, Bob became a market research and media analyst at Dataquest/Gartner in San Jose.  When the FCC opened new spectrum for Low Power FM stations like KGPC, it was time to return to radio. But this time without commercials and computer-generated playlists. That result is East Bay Oldies, an eclectic rock and roll show that spans over 30 years of great music from the 50s to the 80s and explores many genres from rockabilly and R&B to pop hits, album cuts and lost classics, often in the same set of songs.

Aurea Altamirano//El show de aurea I was born in Lima- Peru. I studied my elementary years in the public School Los Reyes Rojos de Chorrillos where we used to sit on bricks and fix light bulbs on our own, a mucha honra. My high school years at Sagrado Corazon-Chalet were like a dream, where next to the breeze I learned to have a friend in Jesus and Virgin Maria. I graduated from Federico Villarreal National University which sent us to the most secret places of Lima to work with children. I was a street vendor, preschool teacher, immigrant, second language speaker, homesick but also I am a lover of my new home, Berkeley, first-time mother and a dreamer that my baby boy will have a better world where to live and love. Hopefully, my two cents get me closer to my goal. --- Nací en Lima, Perú. Estudié mis años de primaria en Los Reyes Rojos de Chorrillos, donde solíamos sentarnos en ladrillos y arreglar las bombillas por nuestra cuenta, a mucha honra. Mis años de escuela secundaria en Sagrado Corazon-Chalet fueron como un sueño, donde junto a la brisa aprendí a tener un amigo en Jesús y María Virgen. Me gradué de la Universidad Nacional Federico Villarreal que nos envía a los lugares más secretos de Lima para trabajar con niños. Era vendedor ambulante, maestra de preescolar, inmigrante, hablante de segunda lengua, nostálgica de mi tierra pero también soy una amante de mi nuevo hogar, Berkeley, madre por primera vez y una soñadora de que mi bebé tenga un mundo mejor donde vivir y amar. Sólo espero que mis dos centavos me acerquen a mi meta.
