The Morning Show with Cousin Dean

Cousin Dean got the radio bug as a kid growing up in Monterey, California, he was known for going down to Cannery Row and watching the DJ's work their magic at Music Power KMBY 1240 AM.

Fast forward many years, 1986-87, Dean got out of the military, moved back to Monterey, and had a chance with then KWAV-FM General Manager Terry Gillingham. Terry in turn, set Dean up with Program Director Michael Reading and he got a gig in radio!

Dean has worked primarily in the Monterey-Salinas-Santa Cruz market; KOCN-FM, KDON-FM, KTOM-FM, KROC-AM, KCDU-FM, KNRY-AM, as well as in Merced, California at KABX-FM.

In addition to working at Boss Radio, Dean also works for Groome Transportation/Monterey as a shuttle and limousine driver. In Livermore, California, he works as a delivery and road test driver for transit bus manufacturer Gillig Corporation.

Dean has five kids, a granddaughter, two dogs, and currently lives in Seaside, California.

Dean says “After all these years, I still have this strong love for radio and the business and I truly enjoy doing my show here on Boss Radio and working with the best in the business, period,” Dean says. “Make it a BOSS RADIO day, every day! on KMBY 1240 AM and 95.9FM ”
