Dean Olson is a songwriter/producer and radio host based in Orange County, California. In 1998, he and his bandmates had formed the band ECLECTIC with rising success, but they broke up after 9/11. The band was pronounced dead, but the dreams of Dean and his collaborator Jim Romero were not. Deciding to stay independent, Dean created Eclectic Songwriter Radio in 2006 and got his music heard on the internet, which was his ambition, whether he made money or not. And to good reviews, too! Now he’s following his dream again and wants to take you with him on the journey! Since 2009, he has interviewed and covered featured musical guests on his show ranging from local bands and music instructors to songwriting legends including Jimmy Webb, Jeff Barry, Mike Love, Thomas Dolby, Charles Fox, Bill Withers and more. This is what has transformed his attitude from being depressed to positive! “StrongWriter On the Radio” is his way of inviting the listener to share in his optimism.
You’ll get to know performers, producers, engineers, vocalists, musicians … all with a common appeal, to encourage you to be a Strong Writer!
