EDDIE VEDDER: Vocals
-- The success of
frontman Eddie Vedder in his current band, Pearl Jam, has
brought with it substantial interest in Bad Radio. Though
Bad Radio reached the height of it's popularity while Eddie was
at the helm, the band was originally unsure about hiring him on
as their singer. "We were really hesitant about him at first,"
says Dave George, "'cause he didn't seem like the frontman type."
Fortunately the band took a chance on him based on the strength
of his audition. To read more about Eddie's involvement in Bad

||DAVE SILVA: Bass --
Though an accomplished guitarist, Dave Silva never played bass
"professionally" until he was asked to play for Bad Radio.
Currently, his talents are involved with a project called "My
Head." Click here

GEORGE: Guitars -- As one of the chief music and lyric
writers for Bad Radio, Dave George formed the core of the band
from the beginning all the way to the end. Since the breakup of
the last version of Bad Radio, he has been involved with several
projects, including his most recent outing as the singer on an
album called "Pauls God".|
PONCHETTI: Drums -- Bad Radio's first drummer and resident Andrew Dice Clay quoter was drumming with other bands on the club circuit when Bad Radio formed. They liked him, he needed a job, and they needed a drummer. During the 90s he was involved with a band called "John Henry" but currently is shredding the skins as part of the L.A. band Dragline.|
|KEITH WOOD: Vocals -- Bad Radio's first vocalist (before the Vedder years) and
last vocalist (he came back after Vedder quit), is currently
in a band named "Joe Smith". Keith's "regular" job includes working in the film industry as a prop master, but he keeps active in songwriting and music. He wrote the music for the L.A. Dodgers' home opener in 1998 and he has done some scores for television. Though his singing isn't heard on the bootlegged copies of the Vedder BR demos, he did work during several pre- and post-Vedder demo studio sessions. His 3-song demo with Bad Radio included the song "Ain't That Sumthin," along with "What the Funk" and "I'm Alive."|
DAWN RICHARDSON: Drums
-- As the band's second drummer, Dawn joined Bad Radio after Vedder left and the band relocated to Hollywood to increase it's
chances of success. Dave George said of her, "Great drummer...I loved playing with her 'cause she grooved mightily." Though she didn't find it with the Bad Radio crew, Dawn went on to find fame, albeit brief, in "4 Non Blondes".
