My interview is with the ONE AND ONLY Al Mainwaring, Star Radio 101.5 FM - KSTB’s Program Manager and Morning Show Host from 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM every Monday though Friday. Listen
Al’s over the top humor and quick wit guarantees a fun, high energy show.
Al is also an extremely talented artist, and some of his paintings are included in this interview. Al began displaying artistic talents and drawing cartoons at the age of 4, and by the time he was in high school, he was established as the most accomplished artist in his school district.
Al grew up in Southwestern Michigan with 10 brothers and sisters. He graduated from the Kendall School of Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he majored in illustration design. After supporting himself as a painter for a van company in Dallas, Texas, for 5 years, he moved to Houston in 1980, and won an audition for voice-work with American Airlines. This voice-over work was the beginning to his career in radio, and he can be heard regularly on late night TV doing those bizarre spots for everything from Bingo Parlors to Face Soap.
Al began his radio career at the old K.I.L.E. on Galveston Island, and also worked for different radio stations including K-Lite KFMK and the old KRBE. Even as a small child, Al was fascinated by the radio and music itself, and has a personal library of over 8,000 titles and 40,000 songs.
Al has been a major influence in my life, and due to his friendship and support, I began my two shows with Star Radio: PAT PATTON’S “WHAT’S HAPPENING AROUND THE BAY”, and “JUST TELL PAT” in September, 2000. Knowing Al, and being on the air with him is a real kick!!
