Behind The Mic

David Ford

Show Host

David Ford is a Nebraska native who started playing music at the age of ten. Falling in love with the art of drumming and orchestral percussion; and later guitar, David is a connoisseur of auditory art. Paired with a love for the sound of radio, he started podcasting in 2009, working with several technology and news podcasts. David is elated with the opportunity to further the music community along the front range of northeastern Colorado.

David is what some (including himself) would classify as a geek. Yearning with an affinity for taking things apart and hopefully putting them back together, David has worked in IT for the majority of his working career. More recently, David has taken an interest in melding his artistic endeavors with technology in the interest being a conduit for artists to reach new heights and connections with their audience.
