Jeff Hofman


I first started in public radio back in late 1987 at KBCS 91.3 in Bellevue WA.  During my years there, which lasted until early 1993, I did afternoon news reports and hosted a few different late night music shows (Midnight to 3 AM).  The first one was called "Nuggets" which featured garage and other styles of rock music from the 1960's.  A few years later, I developed an interest in 60's Soul music and changed the format and name of my show this time to "The Soul Shack".  Later, I combined both rock and soul music on my show thus I called it "The Rock & Soul Shack". 

I've been a volunteer at KSER since August of 1993 where I first started as a board operator for a show called "Con Salsa."  I did that until the end of February of the following year and from March-June 1994, I hosted a 60's and 70's soul and r&b music show called "Rising Soul" which aired Saturday's from 6-8 AM.   In July of '94, I moved to Friday nights from 10 PM to midnight, and this time I changed the name of the show to "Dusties" and still kept the 60's and 70's soul and r&b format.   From late September 1994 to early July 2007, Dusties aired from 8-10 PM on Friday and on July 7th, I moved to my current time of Saturday's from 5-7 PM.    

In 2006, I started to incorporate the sounds of r&b music from the 1940's and 1950's so now the Dusties show contains the best in soul and r&b music from the 60's and 70's along with a touch of 40's and 50's R&B for good measure.

congrats on 20 years


I've been listening to your show for almost 20 years. Babies born and raised and husband raised and booted with the help of your tunes :) Thanks for being there with the soul and R & B! It still sounds fresh,


Hello from and old friend

Hello Jeff, this is Slick-Rick, remember me your friend whom worked with you at Boeing up in Everett during the early 90's. How have you been doing my friend. Please give me a call sometime. Ricky

Jeff, I just heard you say,


I just heard you say, I think, not only your show but KSER may not be here long. A shame. KSER is the best eclectic radio station I know of.

But let me tell you why I'll never make a pledge to the station. The political programing is exclusively left wing. And while I really enjoy listening to points of view different from mine as a way of challenging my own point of view, I also like to hear point/counterpoint. As a decades long-time Libertarian (actually a Jeffersonian Democrat) I can't financially support programing that undermines liberty and freedom of the individual from politicians and judges interested in their own careers and perks; not the general real.

I wish you the best.
