David is a Columbia, Mo. native, son of a college sociology professor, and has lived in K.C. since 1988. He is retired, with a history of a wide variety of jobs, including a career primarily in psychiatric social work. A recognition in the mid-1990’s Kansas City winters were becoming milder led to his dedicated reading on human-induced global warming, and later the Sixth Mass Extinction of Species. These twin-crises pose an existential threat to our Living Earth, offering humanity the opportunity to “grow up”, using our native creativity to move into the Ecological Age. He has a 20-year history of volunteer environmental activism, and has been a humble contributor to Eco-Radio since 2020. He is available for presentations.
I was weaned on the Top 40 of the '60s and came of age in the rock and roll hey day of the '70s. Music was an escape, an education and a driving force in the attitudes and ideals that make up who I am today.
Graves was raised on a farm in Cheyenne County, KS, four miles from Nebraska and 26 from Colorado. He serves on multiple committees and is an Associate Programmer with Radio Active Magazine.

The myth of widespread voter fraud of the Nov., 2020, presidential election birthed over 400 introduced bills in state legislatures all across our nation. In 19 states, 34 of these voter restriction bills were passed, with some including greater partisan control provisions over election processes. In Missouri, the 2021 legislative sessions saw many voter restriction bills introduced, as well as bills seeking radical restructuring of the initiative petition process. The winter/spring legislative session will again see many of these voter restriction bills reintroduced. RadioActive Magazine will host Sen. Greg Razer of the 7th District in Kansas City, and House Representative Yolanda Young of District 22 to discuss these ongoing developments.Listen
