Kip Strean holds down the 6 a.m. to noon shift on KQZR, sprinkling real-life rock ’n’ roll anecdotes in with hand-picked classic rock. Strean rises by 5 a.m. most days, not an easy feat for a one-time touring rock musician.

Dawn Patrol: KQZR's Kip Strean livens up morning airwaves with rocker stories

Rising before dawn and preparing for work does not come naturally to an old ’60s rocker. But Kip Strean and his Australian shepherd mix, Sox, usually are up by 5 a.m., sometimes not until 5:30 a.m., to rub the sleep out of their eyes and make the 10-minute walk to the studios of KQZR radio, The Reel 97.3.
