About Steve O:
I was born outside of St. Louis, Missouri a LONG time ago! As a little kid, I loved stories and discovered I had an ear for voices, music and, well, noise! I would do silly cartoon impersonations to entertain friends and neighbors. I’m so grateful to have belonged to a family that did their best to make Jesus central and taught me a Biblical view of the world.
As I got older, I got involved in theater, and during college, I worked part time at the college radio station, and really enjoyed it. In the years since then, God has blessed me with the opportunity to work for several radio stations, and I’ve never looked back!
In 2000, I started working for Keys for Kids Ministries, as producer of the radio drama: Down Gilead Lane, and later, Red Rock Mysteries. Now, I get to hang out every day on Keys for Kids Radio, and love it! My wife Kelli and I have been married since 1992, and have learned a lot about God’s love and faithfulness through the process of raising our 4 boys!
I was born and raised in Sioux City, Iowa (by the way, there's more than just cornfields in Iowa. We have beans too!). My dad also worked in radio, and without meaning to, I followed in his footsteps when I came to Keys for Kids Radio. My mom worked hard at an office, and I grew up with an older sister and a younger sister, so I was kinda the forgotten middle child ;)
I loved my church growing up. Since I was homeschooled, most of my friends were the kids in my youth group. Mission trips, movie nights, lock-ins, and youth camp were the highlights of my teenager-hood.
I moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan for college, and after graduating, I found myself working at Keys for Kids Ministries producing an audio drama. One thing led to another, and now here I am, happily serving you and your family on Keys for Kids Radio!
Hi, my name is Tami and I'm pleased to meet you! I am the person who picks out the music for Keys for Kids Radio. I spend a lot of time searching high and low for the best kids' music that is not only based on the Bible but also music that you'll love.
My favorite color is purple and I love to eat ice cream WAY TOO MUCH! In my spare time I like to go on long walks, garden and play the djembe. Ok, I don't play the djembe but pretty much everyone in my house does. Do you know what a djembe is? Look it up!
My advice to you is to keep your eyes on Jesus no matter what. That's why Keys for Kids Radio is so awesome....it always points you to Christ!
