Jake Martin-Wagner

Program Associate

As the Underwriting & Music Director, Jake Martin-Wagner strives to deepen aural enjoyment and increase the pleasure of living in a pluralistic society by coordinating and developing all activities related to the KZYX Underwriting and Music Department. He works directly with eclectic volunteer programmers,  and recruits programmers to cultivate diverse music offerings. Jake maintains and updates the music library, will oversee the implementation of the digitalization of the KZYX music library, and serves as the liaison between the radio station and promoters, musical artists, listeners, and record labels. Additionally, Jake coordinates with the KZYX Sponsorship Management Representatives to establish underwriting for the station. Jake is also the host of Under the Radar, a weekly rock music program featuring new releases from emerging and established artists, and underappreciated gems that exude nostalgia and reflection.

Jake was born and raised in sylvan isolation on the sea-blown shores of Fort Bragg. He earned BA’s in Philosophy and Religious Studies from San Francisco State University, before spiraling further down the rabbit hole to obtain his MA in Philosophy from his alma mater. Jake’s experiences with agriculture, culinary arts, emergency services, music, teaching and traveling have imbued him with calm, discipline, humility, patience, and resilience in the face of stagnation and human error. He is not only familiar with serving as a jack of all trades, but sincerely enjoys it, and reveres environments where change is a constant and no two moments are identical.
