Aaron Hay

Host

Aaron Hay hails from the suburbs of Kansas City and he took an unconventional route to KBIA. His love of music, however, has always been constant. From car rides with family and oldies sing-a-longs to trips to Peaches for LPs with Dad to buying that cherished first cassette tape (R.E.M.'s Document, for the curious). Aaron has always had a voracious appetite for new sounds.

Following a career in phlebotomy and retail management, Aaron (with some not so gentle nudging from his then girlfriend and now wife, Amy) began volunteering at a local community radio station in October of 2005. His love of radio has done nothing but grow since that day.

Aaron is now an-air host and audio producer for many of KBIA and Classical 90.5's shows including Paul Pepper, Views of the News, Global Journalist and Mizzou Music. He is rarely seen around the office without his trusty Kansas City Royals ball cap and a coffee in his hand.
