Brian Flick is KPBX's man of many talents. He is Operations Manager, jazz host, producer, and fount of interesting knowledge at the station, as well as a musician in high-demand with several local groups.
Brian first got involved with Spokane Public Radio in 1980 (he still has the t-shirt) as a volunteer to help with recording or schlepping or just about anything thrown at him. In 1984, he began hosting classical music and eventually became the jazz announcer he is today, as well as the producer for Bruce Davis’ Friday night show. As Operations Manager for the station, Brian ensures that programming and underwriting details are in order, while keeping a watchful eye out as new audio comes into the jazz library. He hopes that his music selections reflect his “joy and love of this constantly evolving art form,” and that he shares them in a way that is appealing to listeners. Outside of his life at SPR, Brian is an avid birdwatcher, though he also has great love for astronomy, geology, canoeing, camping and drawing. He plays the bass and trombone, though he’ll gladly fiddle with any instrument he can get his hands on. Brian wants you, the listeners to know that you are great. “I get great ideas, and often useful information from you, and I’d like to take this chance to thank you. If any of you think this is good radio, it’s because of you that it is. Your input, criticism and support literally created, then maintained these stations.”
