WHO IS Xavier The X-Man?
If you have ever heard someone say something unkind about Xavier "The X-Man", call us now because it would be the first. He is truly one of the nicest and most sincere, down to earth people you will ever know. You can feel it just by listening to his radio show. Honest! His love and concern for his fans are so real. It shows when he answers the phone, promotes his radio stations with a personal appearance, reads a letter from a listener, or shares a dedication. There’s nothing not to like about Xavier "The X-Man".
He was born in Fort Ord, California and grew up in a "Mexipino" household (Xavier’s mother is Mexican and father is Filipino) in East Salinas where he attended Alisal High and learned radio at KHDC 90.9fm, a community radio station until going off to college at San Jose State University. During college, he worked at KSJS and programmed a show called RADIO AZTLAN (The Brown Berets of the Airwaves), he also held on air gigs at KHQT Hot 97 in San Jose as well as 102.5 KDON in Salinas. His studies as SJSU earned him a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Relations with a minor in Radio/TV/Video & Film. After college, he launched his career at San Francisco’s WILD 94.9 as the Host of "Turn Off the Lights" and "Xavier The X-Man’s Sunday Night Oldies Show". After being number one for several years Xavier landed a job in Los Angeles at Mega 100 LA’s Jammin Oldies. A two-year run there landed him a new time slot (afternoons) and Assistant Program Director role in San Diego at MAGIC 92.5 "San Diego’s Old School". Xavier can now also be heard back in San Francisco at WILD 94.9 “The Bay Area’s Party Station”, and KOCEAN 105 “The R & B and Old School Station” in the afternoon driving people home on "THE X-MAN’S SHOW". There’s no denying that he’s a busy man, filling up the air waves with his radio shows up and down the west coast, but he truly loves it!
The X-Man also has a BIG TIME LOVE for Lowriders and the lowrider lifestyle. His lover affair for Lowriders started at an early age of seven when his neighbor asked him to help him wash his Chevy Bomb. That pretty much started it; he was hooked. He has one of his own called "X-Stilo Firme 63", a 1963 Chevy Impala Super Sport he just finished building, check out the build in the gallery section of the website. Be on the look out for it at the next car show or on the streets-he’s always crusin.
On the more serious side of Xavier, you’ll find his intense love of the community, doing much of his outreach in the Latino and Filipino communities, with a special passion for giving to children’s causes. It’s genuine, the real deal. You can find him at community events big or small helping make a positive change in the community, from being the MC or just showing up to support the events or announcing them on his radio shows. He even loves going to schools to spread the message of the importance of going to college. Incredible that the guy is not running for a political office!
Don’t be surprised if in the future you hear "The X-Man" on stations across America. Down the road he would like to do his own syndicated Oldies show which currently can be heard all over the world online at www.slowjams.com, & the cities in San Diego, Tucson, & Salinas/Monterey/Santa Cruz.
