Steve Chelmsford is the host of "The Mop Tops & The King" and has been a fan of The Beatles and Elvis Presley since he was three years old. Steve got his start in radio when he met Dusty Fenders, a local radio personality on "Radio Goldfield", a small community radio station in the middle of the Nevada desert. Steve developed a friendship with Dusty and his radio partner Carl Brownfield and soon became a member of "The Carl & Dusty Radio Boogie" writing jingles and other musical pieces. About a year later, Radio Goldfield (KGFN 89.1FM) asked Steve if he would be interested in having his own show. The Mop Tops & The King made its debut on December 4, 2011 and is currently heard in The USA, The UK & Australia on over 40 community radio stations.
In a previous life, Steve was a research engineer with the Air Force Research Laboratory for nearly 30 years. He is a life-long resident of Chelmsford, Massachusetts.
