CAPS Media KPPQ DJ of the Month Doc Ventura

KPPQ features a dedicated and talented crew of local DJs producing unique and information programming. Every month CAPS Media and KPPQ features a DJ who helps define the style and sound of Ventura community radio on KPPQ- LP at 104.1FM and on myTuner. Doc Ventura is performer, guitarist, singer, songwriter, producer and best of all a KPPQ DJ. A Chicago blues man, transplanted to beautiful Ventura, shares his love of the blues from the 1920’s through the present day on Doc’s Delta Blues Lounge. Doc Ventura says “I believe if you LIKE the blues you will LOVE them after tuning in”. The hour-long show features familiar stars like Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf but the majority of the program is dedicated to lesser known blues artists such as Homesick James, J.B. Hutto, T-Model Ford that are often overlooked in radio. The diversity of blues styles and forms found in Doc’s Delta Blues Lounge entertains, informs, and builds appreciation of this indigenous art form. Doc has four solo albums. You can catch Doc and his Delta by the Beach Band or with The Milo Sledge Trio throughout Ventura and up and down the central and south coast. Tune in to 104.1fm on Thursdays at 7pm and Sundays at 3pm to enter Doc’s Delta Blues Lounge. All KPPQ locally produced programs, as well as national and international shows, can be enjoyed 24/7 at 104.1 FM and streamed worldwide on myTuner Radio and on Many of the shows are available on-demand on the KPPQ podcast network found at Stay tuned for the next DJ profile in your Ventura Breeze.
