Jim Stricklan is an acclaimed performing songwriter and radio personality. While broadcasting at legendary radio stations in Texas, Colorado, and Louisiana {from the 1970's onward} this self-taught guitarist became a performing songwriter and recording artist.

His love of music as a teen led him down the twin paths of performance and radio that would feed each other to enrich his art for decades to come.
