Kevin Stapleford


Kevin Stapleford is the Senior Director of Programming at Slacker Radio. He accidentally got into radio way back in the last century, answering the request lines for a boring classic rock station that one day morphed into one of the most influential Alternative stations in the nation.

He worked his way up from the phone room to the Program Director’s office, and went on to program and consult stations in far flung places like Seattle, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Las Vegas and Minneapolis.

Kevin now oversees the radio and content development at Slacker, where he gets to boss people around.
