Doc McCoy has been a familiar deejay on Sonoma County radio since 1993.
Doc has deep roots with Country music, having lived on a farm since he was six years old. He was a 4-H club member through his high school years and worked for a large animal veterinarian during the summers between attending college at Cal-Poly in San Luis Obispo. In the 1980s, Doc competed in the professional rodeo circuit (PRCA) in both bull riding and saddle bronc riding.
“Country music has always been with me as far back as I can remember. I grew up with the songs of Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, and Conway Twitty. When I was in rodeo, I listened to a lot of Chris LeDoux and George Strait. I’ve watched the music change over the years and although today’s music can’t replace the music of my earlier years, it is still some of the best music I’ve ever heard. Country music, yesterday and today, is the one kind of music that truly resonates with who I am. “
Doc is also a published author. In 2007, he began writing the biography of his mother and her family’s experience in a Japanese prison camp during WWII, and completed the manuscript after his trip to the Philippines in 2008. His highly praised book, “Through My
Mother’s Eyes,” was published by Strategic Book Publishing in New York in September of 2008. Doc wrote the award-winning screenplay adaptation, “Under the Rising Sun,” the following year.
Doc lives in Sonoma County with his wife, Angela. His son, Thomas, lives in Las Vegas with his wife, Carrie, and their two children, Gwenyth and Lincoln.
