Paul Berger

Paul Berger's picture

Once upon a time may eons ago (when America was Great the First Time), Paul was a kid living in upstate New York who discovered pop music on his transistor radio.   Paul's interest in music has never waned, persevering through a tortuous move to Southern California at age 10, a psychedelic journey through the University of California, 14 months of vagabonding through Europe and Middle East and a 37-year law career.   Having retired as senior attorney for the California Court of Appeal, Paul is now exploring the other side of his personality, which includes a lifelong ambition to be a DJ.   How crazy is that?

Paul's interests include hiking, bicycling, pickleball, yoga, Qi Gong, political activism and writing.   Instead of writing appellate court opinions, Paul now writes blogs on Facebook and edits the Greater Champion Neighborhood Association newsletter.   You may ask him for legal advice, but don't expect a useful reply.   And please don't get him started on politics.

Last November Paul became a KVMR certified broadcaster after passing a test that was way harder than the bar exam.  In January 2018 Paul landed his own show called the Paulie Morphous Show (PMS) every other Sunday.  In May, Paul switched time slots from Sunday to Wednesday at the same time, 4-7 am and renamed his show Dawn Eclectica.   Paul's wide and varied musical tastes will have you shouting with delight or cursing the radio, depending on how high you register on the evolutionary scale.  Paul has begun doing "theme" shows.  Recently Paul did an entire program about the year 1968, a bonanza of nonstop Car Songs and River Songs, an Earth Day Tribute and a show full of songs devoted to California.  One regular feature he laughingly calls "Copycats" highlights two songs that were the subject of copyright infringement legal battles.   He will tickle your early morning fancy with inspirational quotes and quirky cover songs which put a unique spin on a tune you thought you knew.   Don't try to put Paul in a category -  but feel free to buy him coffee or a beer if you run into him (and his adorable dog Woody) around Nevada City.
