I think that Paris (rapper) worked at KDVS while in college. Can anyone confirm this? ike9898 14:47, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

Nothing can be offered as hard evidence, but this is known to be true. Paris hosted a program which played hip hop and included frank monologues about politics and society from an afrocentric viewpoint. He occasionally took live callers on the air, and one particularly volatile on-air exchange has remained legendary here. RickEle

Well, actually I think this could be documented. I think KDVS at that time published quarterly program directory. There has to be at least one archive of these in the Davis community. ike9898 01:36, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
We still publish it. Although I'm not sure how many of the old programming guides we have lying around. WesleyDodds 02:15, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
I know some of the DJs at KDVS ought to have been around when he was there... Rick, you've been there since at least the early 90s, right? Surely you know who might know...??? In any case, if the KDVS web page adds a section listing former DJs who've become notable, that could be used as a legitimate source, so long as they can quote someone who was there when he was there...--Reverend Distopia 16:14, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
I think it would be late 80's. I was there ~90-92 and I was told of him in the past tense at that time. ike9898 16:21, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

DJ Shadow[edit]

I know this pertains more to DJ Shadow than to KDVS per se, but I noticed that neither the KDVS article nor the DJ Shadow article cites when Josh Davis DJ'd at KDVS. It only says that he did. Anyone have a time period on this one?--Reverend Distopia 16:14, 7 March 2007 (UTC)


This article needs to have some references added or it's going to be in danger of being deleted.--Rtphokie (talk) 12:49, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Please dont readd unreferenced material. The burden of evidence lies with the editor who adds or restores material. see WP:PROVEIT.--Rtphokie (talk) 16:12, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

History & Staff[edit]

I posted the history with permission from KDVS, also i think the current staff is important, since now wikipedia is more up to date with the staff than the actual KDVS website at this moment. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jersupereq (talkcontribs) 23:56, 10 January 2011 (UTC)

  • There is no reason provided to support notability of the staff. I've also removed the bulk of the article, which was merely copied and pasted from the station's website. Please read WP:RELIABLE. JNW (talk) 00:38, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
