Big Jon Snyder's blog


I’m not only the Promotions Director and Weekend Host of 97.7 The River, I’m also a listener…Since its inception, I have been rocking out to such favorites as Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Grateful Dead, Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC, Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Stevie Ray, Van Halen, The Who, Tom Petty, Judas Priest and the countless other bands I love!

I’m Bay Area born…so I was raised during the San Francisco music movement. Some of my fondest memories as a child are spending summers in Golden Gate Park with my family on the grass listening to Jefferson Airplane (Starship), Santana, Country Joe and The Fish, and The Dead…its was the same feeling of togetherness I feel when I listen to The River today, it truly is Classic Rock for the North Bay!

Many of you may know me from hosting Mornings and Evenings on The River’s sister stations KSRO and KXFX…I have been on the air here since 1994 and loving every moment of it. The best thing about radio…getting the opportunity to commit random acts of kindness on a daily basis, so stay close...I will be taking your song requests and hooking you up with concert tickets, guitars autographed by the biggest names in rock, and more!

I like to think of myself as “Rock & Roll Santa Claus” and I‘m making a list right now!
