About Jim Nelson

I've been in the music business since 1983, beginning in the programming department of KLOS radio in Los Angeles. My background includes stints on the air at both KCAL in San Bernardino, California, and KTWV in LA. I've written and produced two different nationally syndicated radio programs, Power Cuts and In The Studio, and I've been VP/Managing Editor of The Album Network group of trade publications since 1996. I've published more than 300 articles since 1990, and my list of bios written for record companies includes Brother Cane, The Why Store, Steve Perry, Black Lab and Dave Sharp of The Alarm.
