Neal started his radio career at Cal Poly SLO's KCPR in 1989. He started volunteering at KCBX in 1993, spinning discs every Saturday night on the Night Train, a show he still does today. In 1997 he joined the full-time staff of KCBX as the Music Director and the Dee-Jay for the Morning Cup. Neal has also worked for multiple commercial radio stations over the last 25 years, including K-Otter, K-Bear and The Beach. He has worked at record stores, promoted concerts, written music columns and published his own music magazine over the years. Neal loves sharing music any way he can and always has, since his early days of taking James Brown 45s to his 2nd grade class for "Show and Tell."
Besides sharing music, Neal loves racing cars in the 24 Hours of Lemons and Chump Car racing series and he recently discovered a new passion for winemaking while working harvest for Linne Calodo Winery in Paso Robles.
Take a ride on the Night Train every Saturday night with hosts Neal Losey and JT de la Torre as they give you the best sounds of soul, funk, and R&B. The show will focus mainly on American Black pop music from the 1950s to the 1980s, as well as any new artists or new releases that fit with the feeling of the show.
The Morning Cup is a program that is all about good music. Good music of all types. The show starts with a solid dose of Jazz and then spreads out from there. You will hear some of the great new artists from today as well as legends from the past. Join Neal each weekday morning as he plays Jazz as well as a little Soul, Blues, Americana, Indie and other forms of music from all around the world. On Tuesdays, the show spreads out more for an even broader sample of the good music that is out there.
Expect to find out about great live music happening around the Central Coast and be prepared to possibly win some tickets too!
