Jack Josey, Owner of Audiobag
Hi, I'm glad you're here. I'm Jack Josey, the owner of Audiobag. I got my start in the audio industry at age 13 as the youngest DJ in Texas at an Austin, Texas radio station. In my 20's, I did morning drivetime as a country DJ at a station in Georgetown using my real name, and then drove 25 miles down the road to Austin to do the afternoon drivetime shift at KOKE-AM under a different name. A few short years later, I became manager and part owner of KGTN radio in Georgetown. I did everything from on-air shifts, selling advertising, producing commercials to cleaning the offices.
After the station was sold at the end of 1986, I opened up an audio production studio in the same building where the radio station was located and named it The Commercial Store. I continued to produce commercials -- only this time for stations throughout the U.S. In 1990, new audio services were added such as phone messages on hold and full-length voiceovers for video presentations, and I hired my first employee. We changed the name to Audiobag to represent a bag of audio tools (microphone, headphones,a reel of tape). The new name also made a nice transition from the bag that The Commercial Store used as a logo.
In 2020, we adjusted to the pandemic and managed to survive. We're optimistic about 2021 and we hope you stay healthy!
