I'm Tina Bjorklund, owner of Spokane Voice. After 25 years in local radio and television I have made the leap to open Spokanevoice. My passion is to create that special “sparkle” to each project or event with professional ease, so you can focus on other aspects of your event or project with a relaxed confidence. I intend on each endeavor to be intimately customized. Although we have so much technology in equipment, I want to remain exclusive to one project at a time, YOURS. This concept of one at a time service, combined with experience, help insure a productive yet enjoyable experience for all.
Spokane Voice offers commercial radio production, spoken word projects such as book reading productions, documentary voice-overs and a Spokane area mobile DJ service. Very soon, we will have our award winning blues show available for subscription for radio stations nationally.
In school I won the “Best Production Overall” award at graduation. I then immediately was hired by the old KEYF-FM when it was a new age/jazz station. During this time a friend had a mobile dj business and I got my first taste of that helping her. Back then, milk cartons were filled with vinyl records were hauled around along with huge speakers and turntables.
It was also around this time I wandered into Spokane Public Radio and was hired. There, I was a board operator and announcer and given the Soundspace program to develop. I had incorporated poetry with spacemusic and such. With KEYF failing I went on to KAYU and learned master control while keeping the public radio gig.
I have always felt pretty versatile with music and began filling in for many local producers at KPBX. My love of soul and blues were highlighted when I inherited the “Blues Review” and won “Best Blues Radio Program” 3 years in a row. I began hosting blues Festivals and cruises. I had to leave the station for awhile to help aging parents. I was called back to develop a new show, “Village Rock” which I did for 5 years at KPBX. Then, the blues slot opened again and while I taught my son to take over Village Rock, The Blues Kitchen was born and continued a few years.
