The Class of 1970 was, obviously, quite talented. In addition to producing Wayne Stam, 1970 also produced one of America’s most popular syndicated talk radio hosts, Phil Hendrie.


Phil was born September 1, 1952 and spent virtually all of his youth in Arcadia. Always having a love of writing, at age 14 he discovered radio, as well. He hung around KRLA in Pasadena watching on-air personalities like Bob Eubanks, Casey Kasem and “Emperor” Bob Hudson. After graduating from AHS, he attended P.C.C. for two years, but dropped out and moved with friends to central Florida.


After several years in the construction industry, Phil made a dramatic career shift, landing a gig as a DJ at WBJW in Winter Park, Florida. Over the next several years, Phil bounced around to various stations across the country including Orlando, New Orleans, Miami and his first on air job in Los Angeles at KLSX, when it was still a classic rock station.


After being fired in 1990 from KLSX, Phil took his act to KVEN in Ventura. It was there that his current show format was born. He developed a variety of “characters” for the program to, initially, compensate for a lack of callers. It was this challenge that led to his program being one of the 20 most listened to syndicated radio programs in America. Well over 1 million people listen to Phil weekly. Hendrie is based in Southern California and heard locally on AM 640, KFI. Visit Phil’s official website at www.philhendrieshow.com
