Bob Malik is a former Modesto resident and KFIV radio personality. After leaving Modesto Bob had a successful major market radio career. He now lives with his family in Southern California. For years, Bob was the host of THE BEATLE YEARS, a weekly program that aired nationwide, including locally on KRVR, 105.5.
Bob was asked to provide his autobiography for the Modesto, CA Central Catholic High School (CCHS) Alumni Magazine. He has graciously given us permission to share his story here at The Modesto Radio Museum.
From there, I worked at radio stations in Sacramento, San Diego and San Francisco, where I was fortunate enough to become Program Director at K-101. I found myself in the unlikely situation of advising the people I grew up listening to how to do their jobs. That was something I really hadn’t anticipated. But, it turned out to be a winning team. We were able to take the station to #1. I also spent a few years at the radio station many of us listened to in high school— KFRC.

I knew Bob when he worked at KFIV in Modesto. I used to hang out with him when he was working nights at the station. I enjoyed those days!
I went to school with Bob. Same class. We both were interested in music, as music was a pivotal focus in the 70’s and 80’s mostly. I was always aware of his escalating career. One of the great voices in radio.
