Guest Biography: 

Mike Gastineau (AKA “The Gasman”, AKA “Gas”, AKA “Who?”) has been a fixture in the Seattle broadcasting community since his arrival in June of 1991. In a business where loyalty and longevity are rarely used in the same sentence his 21-year career at KJR Radio screams out both. For 19 of those years (1993 to 2012) he anchored KJR’s afternoon drive time slot working both solo and with partners. That stint included a memorable 14-year run as half of the wildly popular Groz with Gas show.

In December of 2012 Gas resigned from KJR to pursue other interests. To date those interests include a book on the launch of the Seattle Sounders FC in MLS. The book, entitled Sounders FC: Authentic Masterpiece is available now.

Since April of 2013 Gas has been a regular contributor to Pearl Jam Radio on Sirius XM channel 22. He does long form interviews with athletes, musicians, and other special guests. In July he originated a pre and post concert program before and after the band’s show at Wrigley Field in Chicago.
