Dr. Dan was the host from 2008 to 2011, taking over from Don Jennings who did the program for ten years. Locals Only is still going strong with host Matt Milner each Monday from 8-10pm with a live performance in Studio 2A at 9pm on Community Radio KXCI. "My first experience with Tucson music was at a benefit for KXCI in January, 2004. Right away, I was hooked. Tucson had something special going on with original, passionate songwriting performed at historic venues like The Temple of Music and Art, The Rialto Theatre, and various clubs and galleries. Over the years I was privileged to become a part of the creativity and host Locals Only. I am happy to share some of the best performances from 2009 through 2011, recorded live in KXCI's Studio 2A" -Dr. Dan.
KXCI Community Radio stations provides a rare platform for local and emerging artists whose work does not fall within the narrow parameters of other broadcast outlets. By introducing these artists to local audiences, KXCI has helped launch and sustain the careers of numerous contemporary musicians. Locals Only features a one hour interview/performance with local musicians 50 times a year. The Home Stretch features more than 100 live interview/performances annually of local and touring musicians. All of these performances are recorded and archived. The best go on our KXCI compilations which are used to help support the station.
