Samantha James

  • Monday-Friday 7:00pm-12:00am

Samantha James started out her career in London at the legendary Radio Luxembourg working her way up from girl who made the tea to Operations Manager. She moved to Chicago in the nineties and landed a job at Q101 by “exaggerating” her on-air experience (she had none!) Her love of all things eighties made her an obvious choice for the Retro Flashback Lunch. She went on to work at WTMX, WZZN, Nine FM in Chicago and WWZZ in Washington DC. She spent some time on the East coast raising her sons but was thrilled to move back to the Chicago area.

She currently calls Geneva home and enjoys sharing it with her husband, her two grown lads (when they are not at University) and her Havanese Izzy. She loves tennis and is an avid game player (no not video games … board games), trivia geek, Dr. Who and jigsaw puzzle fan. Yes, she waves her nerd flag proudly. She loves Classic Rock especially now that the eighties are considered Classic!
