Jim Buchanan's picture
Real name: 

Public Information


Jim Buchanan began recording live music at the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in 1997. He values capturing the energy of a live music performance, and the importance of saving these recordings for future generations. After mix down, many of his recordings find their way to playback on KDRT's program "Live Tracks." Since 2004, Jim has recorded over 150 performances in Davis, CA., predominately at the Odd Fellows Lodge for the Thursday Live! concert series (2009-present) and the E. St. Plaza (2004-2008). He was present (and recording) September 24, 2004, when KDRT-LP broadcast for the first time. His association with Davis Media Access and KDRT, its staff and many volunteers, and with the many extremely talented musicians who call Yolo County home, brings with it a unique and enduring source of satisfaction and poverty. Peace.

Jim Buchanan
