Jim was a seasoned Cleveland and Akron guitarist and singer for many years. He played in various groups with many different musical styles such as Rock, Blues, Country, Big band, and Motown. He was quoted as saying "I am now playing the same material that I first learned when I was 15 years old and it is still working today, WHO KNEW? HAVE FUN!".

He reluctantly played accordion (mother made him!) for 5 years, guitar for 3 years and finally finding a home on bass guitar when he was a sophomore in High School. Since then, Larry has performed at over 2,000 events, or as he liked to put it - over 225 stages. He has played some very impressive venues like: The House of Blues, The Agora (Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo), WMMS Appreciation Days and many top tier local clubs. Larry has played with the most talented local Cleveland musicians for years in Cities all across the country. Larry's was reputed in musical circles as one of the best bass players in town and was known for his versatility, accuracy, dynamics and very tasteful presentation of the bass guitar.
In Memory of Rock Radio Brothers who are no longer with us...Great Musicians and Friends, Larry & Jim - You will always be a part of our family and our Music !
Dan Rode - Sound Engineer
The importance of a great Sound Engineer to the overall live musical experience is dramatic. Dan has brought his experience and professionalism to Rock Radio making the band sound much cleaner and better controlled. We are all appreciative of what Dan brings to every venue and Happy to have him as a member of Rock Radio. Dan plays guitar, loves to ride his motorcycle and works in a highly technical job making him probably the smartest guy in the band!!
Jerry Mitchell - Bass/Guitar/Vocals
Jerry is a well-established and successful musician playing in the Cleveland area for many decades. He not only has a strong background in the Rock and Roll world learning his trade from some of the best guitarists but is also trained in classical music. Jerry plays multiple string instruments but will mostly play bass in Rock Radio. Occasionally during the venue, Jerry will bust out his guitar and jam out some classic guitar hits showing off his lead guitar abilities...very cool! Jerry is a welcome addition to the band and will make Rock Radio even stronger.
Rick Snider - Drums/Percussions
Rick is one of the premier drummers in Ohio. He has played with Rock Radio in the past and we are very happy to have him back. Rick plays in several bands in Cleveland showing off his enormous talent. He can play every style of music from Rock and Roll to Funk, Blues, Jazz and even Christian Music on Sundays at his Church. Rock Radio is very excited to be playing with Rick again.
Mike Raymond - Vocals/Guitar/Percussions
Besides being a karaoke singer, Mike didn't perform his first live music gig until he was 26 after his roomate's band lost their lead vocalist unexpectedly and were desperate for a replacement. After pulling off the one-nighter quite sucessfully, Mike and his roomate began working on writing original songs and covers for a few years. Mike has been a member of several other projects since his accidental introduction to the world of live perfomances finally finding a home with Rock Radio. Mike is Rock Radio's primary vocalist and entertainer who plays an Ibanez acoustic-electric guitar, hums the harmonica, shakes the tamborine and eagerly awaits the "More Cowbell!" cries from the audience.
Ray DelBrocco - Guitar/Bass/Keyboards/Vocals
Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, Ray has been playing guitar and keyboards since the age of ten. Ray has been fortunate to play in several successful bands including "Trixx", "Jynx" and now "Rock Radio". Until "Rock Radio", Ray was most proud of "Trixx" which may have been the first tribute band in the area. The last set of every gig was dedicated, non-stop music, to one of several different artists "Trixx" would replicate. At the time, "Trixx" was honored as Scene Magazines favorite band.
Jeff Bogusz - Lead Guitar/Vocals
Jeff may be one of the most talented guitarist in the area...certainly my favorite. He has toured the Country several times with National bands like Pony Express and others. With a great stage presence, strong complimentary harmonies and a fiery guitar style that just ignites Rock Radio and the Crowd.
