Board Of Directors

Mark Shirrod, Chair

Mark ShirrodBorn and raised on a farm in North Idaho’s Palouse country, Mark moved to Boise in 1976 to explore Idaho south of the Salmon River. After nearly 5 decades he is still in discovery mode, and Radio Boise and the Boise music scene are a major guiding force in that journey.Throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s you might have found him dancing the night away in places like Pengilly’s, The Bouquet, or Whisky River. Or bobbing along red-eyed to national acts at the fairgrounds (ugh!), The Big Easy, or The Pavilion. But it wasn’t until his wife Rebecca introduced him to Radio Boise that he began to recognize the connection between music and community. What was once merely a playful pastime has become a purposeful pursuit. He hopes to bring 40+ years of experience in business, sales and service to the Radio Boise Board and contribute to the station’s important role in the Treasure Valley. Specifically, he wants to help the station reach more listeners and be recognized as THE radio source for local independent music, public affairs and art. Besides music, Mark is interested in politics, cooking, golf, locally brewed beer, travel, and baseball.

Daniel Glynn, Vice Chair

Photo of Daniel GlynnDaniel began his passion for music at an early age, dividing his time between studies and playing in a Boise-based alternative rock band. With no recording contract in one hand, but a law degree obtained from Gonzaga University School of Law in the other, Daniel entered the practice of law in 1995, first as a clerk to the Idaho Supreme Court and then in private practice. Daniel is an attorney at the Boise, Idaho, law firm of Jones Williams Fuhrman Gourley P.A, with a specialized practice in complex commercial litigation, construction, employment law and entertainment law. As a complement to his law practice, Daniel still maintains his passion for music through his volunteer work at Radio Boise, by testing the foundations of his home (and his neighbors’ patience) with his bass guitar, and by spinning records as the host of Riff Häven on Tuesday nights from 9 to 11 pm.

Meaghan Lopez, Secretary

Meaghan (they/them) enjoys a warm summer day in the sun and a toasty fire to warm up next to in the winter. They’ve been a resident of the Treasure Valley for 22 years and enjoy living on the Boise Bench with their husband. Working in the service industry here in Boise for the last 7+ years was invaluable and truly shaped who they are today. Graduating from Boise State in 2019, they earned their Bachelors of Science in Sociology with an emphasis on Ethnic Studies and a certificate in Elementary Spanish. They first became involved with community work and organizing through their internship and volunteering with Immigrant Justice Idaho, a local non-profit that provides free or low cost legal aid to immigrants throughout all of Idaho. Their education at Boise State helped start their passion for social justice, but taking an active role in community organizing work solidified their commitment to it. They’ve gained a deep respect for the critical role that media, and specifically music and community-led radio programs, play in our collective growth and prosperity.

Karen Callaway, Treasurer

Karen Callaway

Karen Callaway has been exploring Boise the last 22 years, enjoying the outdoors skiing, backpacking, and camping, as well as enjoying the growing wine scene. She graduated with a Bachelor’s of Accountancy from Boise State in 2005, and started with a nonprofit organization. Her background in accounting will help to support the board as she applies her experience as Treasurer.  Karen is enthusiastic about serving on Radio Boise Board of Directors, as music has always been an important presence in her life. Growing up there was always something playing in the background, whether it was Nana’s Mariachi or West Coast R&B. You can find Karen at as many live comedy shows and concerts as possible, hopefully enjoying a good glass of wine.

Jim Musser

Jim MusserJim’s Idaho roots blend with his appreciation for diversity, culture, community, and music – all things Radio Boise. He holds a degree in accounting from Boise State and found himself happily in the DJ seat at KUOI at University of Idaho during his freshman year. An accountant by education but not disposition, he has spent his career in industrial and agricultural construction management. He has a passion for international travel and loves a good adventure. His interest in community radio was piqued while on a road trip to Seattle when he and a buddy discovered KEXP. Sensing the value it holds, Jim began his involvement with Radio Boise soon thereafter, starting with the construction of the station. His goal as a board member is to utilize his project management background to help the station with planning and strategy. On any given day you’ll find Jim balancing his work, his passion for running, and spending time with his family.

Steph Coyle

Steph Coyle, her husband Kevin and their then 1 YO daughter moved to Boise in 1996. 2 more daughters came along over the next 8 years. Family comes first for Steph, but she is also passionate about music, art, alternative culture and community bonds. That passion grew into many years of being a heartfelt advocate for those elements as an active participant in Boise’s music and art scene. Between 2011-2017 that participation included co-hosting a 3 hour radio show every Thursday afternoon on the Radio Boise airwaves called Mothers Ruin. While curating playlists of music to share with the KRBX audience was certainly a blast, Steph equally loved utilizing the Radio Boise platform to build and foster relationships between the station and the community at large. Now, being reunited with KRBX as a board member, Steph is excited to pick up where she left off in helping to steer Radio Boise to being the heart, soul and core of the Boise and beyond community.
