More about The Drive and our host, Steve Jaxon

See the sidebar on this page for several full interview segments from the last two years. The Drive is heard daily Mon.-Fri., 3-6 PM (Pacific), on KSRO in Santa Rosa, CA. The best interviews are now available in this weekly show for national syndication.

The show's growth and success come from its unique blend and balance of topics and guests.

The Drive is a collaboration between Steve Jaxon and Producer Mike De Wald. In this video interview embedded on a page of our blog, you can see Mike and Steve interviewed by journalist Daedalus Howell. Steve tells the story of how he developed the concept for a daily talk show that would cover all topics, not just political news but a careful balance of serious and fun stories and guests.

Steve also told the story in The Bohemian, in an extensive February 2015 interview describing his career, The Drive and its successful formula. Read the full story at The Bohemian's website, here.
