Pirate Radio Morning Show with Jack and Kim

In 2014 Jack was looking for an on air partner and Kim approached him about doing the show together and the rest is history.

Jack joins Kim at 8am and the zaniness begins. You’ll never know what you’ll hear especially during the “News you Can Lose” and Kim’s bad jokes at 9:30. Beatles fans will love the Beatles block every morning at 9am and the 10 o’clock coffee break features a long set of commercial free music and, depending on the day, includes twofers, triple plays and throw backs. Of course, Kim serves up the news, traffic and weather to help you get your day started.

Friday’s are extra special since they often will take the morning show on the road with "Newsmakers" and community leaders talking about upcoming events and news that affects the Keys including live music from a local musician to round out the show.

So tune in weekdays for mornings with Jack and Kim ONLY on Pirate Radio Key West and worldwide on the free app and streaming on this website!

Jack Smith

Jack was born into radio in Miami Beach and it’s been the family business his entire life. His father started his career in radio right here in Key West back in 1954 at WKWF - which stands for Wonderful Key West Florida!

Jack has literally worked in radio all over the world with stops in Denver, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and even St Petersburg Russia where he owned and operated 107.9 Super Radio. Jack left traditional radio to work with SPIN Magazine in New York producing SPIN Radio which was broadcast on more than 700 College radio stations in North America.

With a big global idea Jack formed the company Bridge Media International and began to work with Unique Broadcasting in London in collaboration with MTV Europe where they produced MTV Radio programming broadcast to more than 17 countries in East Europe where millions of young adults discovered their MTV! Jack has interviewed lots of big name artists from Boy George, Paul Oakenfold, Peter Noone to most recently Jimmy Buffett right here in Key West!

Jack decided there was no better place on earth than Key West and The Florida Keys to call home. It was time to create something on radio that’s a true original. And it was on August 11, 2011 that Pirate Radio Key West was born! We hope you enjoy the station as much as we do bringing it to you everyday! Thanks for listening and we hope you’ll spread the word about Pirate Radio Key West!

A.K.A. (Janet Planet) sometimes!

Kim’s back in radio and couldn’t be more happy than to be on Pirate radio every weekday morning from 6 to 10.

Hailing from Kentucky, Kim worked in radio in both Lexington (WKQQ) and Louisville (WQMF and WHAS) before moving to Key West MANY years ago.

She’s been in all aspects of radio, TV and newspaper in the Keys as deejay, manager and account executive.

She lives in the Lower Keys with her pet basset hound Jill, her Terrier Jackson and can be seen in the backcountry on her boat most weekends!

Since moving to Key West from Ohio in 2007, DReay has found himself involved in all aspects of the Key West music scene. Whether he’s playing your favorite Pirate Radio tunes, playing percussion with his band The Naturals, writing/recording/producing new music with a variety of local and national musicians, repairing guitars at the local music shop or engineering live shows, it all started with a deep love for music.

With a background spanning various fields from construction to non-profit fundraising to working in bars to politics(yikes!), in 2015 DReay co-founded and still runs the locals’ favorite food company Chicktatoes®. Shortly after in 2016 he joined the WKYZ team and immediately found a home at Pirate Radio!

Aside from his 10a-3p show every Saturday you can also hear him filling in whenever he’s needed on the Pirate Radio Morning Show and The Landon Show - you never know when you’ll hear his voice over the airwaves!
