Jed The Fish

Sun: 6PM-12AM

Edwin Fish "Jed" Gould III (born July 15, 1955), known to radio listeners as Jed the Fish, is a disc jockey who hosted afternoon drive on KROQ-FM in Los Angeles, from 1978 to 2012. Known for his maniacal laugh and biting humor, he interviewed seminal alternative acts such as Brian Eno, David Bowie, Sting and Elvis Costello, and is often jokingly credited as the first DJ on KROQ to play The Offspring's "Come Out and Play" in 1994 and Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” in 2008. An early supporter of New Wave and alternative bands, Jed the Fish is reputed to be the first US DJ to play Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, The Pretenders and thus helping KROQ establish itself as the preeminent alternative radio station of the 1980s and 1990s.
