Born and raised in Northern California, Lindsey has been playing music and going to concerts since she was a child. She grew up in the central valley, taking instrument lessons and spending countless hours on the internet listening to random bands. After high school she moved out to Davis to study psychology. While in school she always pursued music as well, performing in an acoustic duo whenever she had the time.
Though college was an important growing phase for her, she always felt like her life was out of balance. As her College career started to come to a close, Lindsey began to feel like her life was going in the wrong direction. She knew that her true passion was music. In 2012, Lindsey auditioned for NBC’s singing competition “The Voice”. To her absolute surprise she made it to the semifinals under the guidance of Christina Aguilera. For the past year she has been working on her debut album, “The Symptom”. Music began to make its way into every aspect of her life, and when she was given the opportunity to work at RADIO 94.7 it was as though fate had struck once again.
“I’ve always been fascinated with the thought of working in radio and was already a fan of RADIO 94.7. The music selection and variety is very intuitive, in that it speaks to a large audience that is not artistically satisfied with the pop industry formula that has been fed to most stations for the past decade,” said Lindsey about her new position at RADIO 94.7. “It’s seemingly free-form yet diverse and captivating format has kept me listening for the past three years. Music has always been my passion, and finding new artists is a compulsion. I cannot think of radio station I would be more suited or excited to represent and work for!”
Cooper comes to Sacramento from the frozen tundra of Minnesota. He doesn’t talk like they do in the movie Fargo, but it is one of his favorite movies.
Since he was a kid, Cooper was drawn to music and to the radio. He was a drummer in school music classes and eventually got his first A…in Media class. “We had a low-power radio station at school, and I really dedicated myself. I would pick up air-shifts from other students and sometimes I would alter the schedule the teacher made so I could be on–air more.” Being a drummer in the school Jazz Band gave him an appreciation of the music he loved playing on the radio, and more A’s on the report card. “I knew I had to do something in the music industry; it was the only thing I seemed to be good at!”
It worked out well for Cooper. He attended college, got a radio job, and worked his way up. He spent 14 years at his last radio job, and only left because his girlfriend accepted a job offer here in Sacramento. “We talked about it and decided we hated Minnesota winters and that California Sun was what we wanted. So we did it!” It worked out, as Cooper found himself in the right place at the right time. “I fell in love with this station the first time I heard it online back in Minnesota. I was a Radio 94.7 listener before I even got here. I would crank the station while packing, and hoped I would be able to work here someday!”
Cooper has 2 dogs, Punk & Snickers. He loves to golf, ride his motorcycle, and eats plenty of Sushi. He resides in the Natomas area with his girlfriend, Jill.
“I am SO THRILLED to be a part of this radio station. I hope Sacramento embraces me as much as I have embraced it. This is my last stop on the journey. I LOVE IT HERE and can’t wait to grow along with Radio 94.7.”
