Kirsten

VP Programming/HOST

Raised in the picturesque town of Safety Harbor, Florida, Kirsten grew up in what could be the setting for Margaritaville with a lifelong passion for music, travel, sunshine and water. The irony is that Kirsten works so hard that she barely has time for Margaritas – along with hosting each day on Radio Margaritaville she is the Program Director as well as one of the (non-singing) voices of the Margaritaville Brand where her friendly voice can be heard on various Margaritaville products and resort locations!

JD Spradlin

HOST

Like many Parrotheads, JD's first Jimmy Buffett concert changed the course of his life. That night, Nov. 20, 1983 in JD's home town of Tallahassee, may be a slightly blurred memory, but he still has the tequila bottle that was consumed as a reminder. JD knew then that he wanted to entertain.

After working with kids and DJing in his hometown, JD moved to Orlando to continue his career. His talents soon reached every major Orlando theme park as a DJ, MC, and Host. In 2007, JD landed the perfect gig as host for SiriusXM’s Radio Margaritaville. When not broadcasting Live from the Orlando SiriusXM Parrot Perch, you will find him taking his show on the road in support of Margaritaville venues and Parrothead Clubs from Key West to California.

Patrick has loved Jimmy and all things Margaritaville since being introduced by his parents, daily, since birth (his dad claims he gave Jimmy the phrase “The Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful”, but that isn’t fact-checked). When he’s not trying to get through an order of Volcano Nachos, Patrick is also a comedian, writer, playwright, and accident-prone bicyclist. He is thrilled and honored to be part of the Radio Margaritaville family.

Ryan Middledorf

Ryan Middledorf

CO-HOST


Ryan Middledorf is a Virginia-born and Los Angeles-based comedian, podcaster and producer who was seven years old before he knew that anyone other than Jimmy Buffett made music (what a shock). In true Parakeet fashion, his first concert was a Buffett show and he hasn't looked back since. When he's not listening to Nautical Wheelers on repeat, he's learning how to make tiki drinks that some have described as "a little too tart" and "not half bad, better luck next time". He currently co-hosts the Parrothead Podcast with his Radio Margaritaville co-host, Patrick McDonald and has two sweet dogs (Bagels and Bodie) that interrupt almost every recording. Gotta' love 'em!
