Station Manager
   Graham Nystrom
As a guitarist and pianist, making music is one of Graham’s primary passions, but the technological side of the music industry has been his trade since 2003.  Starting out as a live sound and recording engineer for bands and venues, he eventually turned to broadcast radio as Technical Director for Live Wire Radio and Oregon Public Broadcasting.  Now, he couldn’t be happier offering his skills and experience to Coast Community Radio.
