Jim Kerr is celebrating 40 years of being on-air in New York City. His show, The Jim Kerr Rock & Roll Morning Show, airs weekdays from 5-9 a.m. on Clear Channel’s Q104.3, New York’s Classic Rock.

At age 21 Kerr began his radio career as the morning show host at WPLJ New York; a position he held for 15 years. His radio career includes morning shifts at WPIX, WYNY, WXMV, WQCD and Y107. Kerr has interviewed the biggest names in rock including Robert Plant, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Brian May, Mick Jagger and countless others.

Kerr is a member of the board of directors of the AFTRA Foundation and in 2013 was elected vice president of the New York Local of Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. He is an active member of the community, serving on the board of directors for Heartshare Human Services, and he is a seven-time host of the St. Jude Children’s Hospital Radiothon. In addition, the mayor of New York City and governors of both New York and New Jersey have honored him for raising millions of dollars for civic and charitable groups.

Shown here are shots of Kerr in his early days and today. The old school feel isn’t limited to the vintage equipment of the turntable, carts, rotary-pot console and other discrete equipment.
