Biography

Jimm Ladd

Source: www.955klos.com

Jim Ladd (born January 17, 1948), an American disc jockey, radio producer and writer, is one of the few notable remaining freeform rock DJs in United States commercial radio. Unlike his contemporaries, Ladd personally selects every song he plays on his weeknight show on KLOS-FM in Los Angeles. Station management gives him complete control over show content. He combines music with atmospheric sound samples and social commentary, often inviting listeners to participate on the air. Most of his music sets center around a theme or story-line, such as Wild West outlaws, beautiful women or fast cars. He regularly adds appropriate listener requests to his themed sets; sometimes a request will inspire an entire set. He has two theme-based shows every week, on Wednesday and Friday nights. On Wednesday at midnight, he performs an hour-long, uninterrupted segment called "Headsets."
