James McGrew Yosemite Peaches
Have you ever met a person you just know is destined for greatness? That is exactly how I felt when I met James McGrew in 2007. To be honest, he was already well on his way. James and I collaborated on a series of art and nature workshops in Yosemite National Park over the past decade, and he has taught me about many aspects of interpretive guiding through our shared adventures together. McGrew is a seasonal interpretive park ranger in Yosemite and an award winning artist. Since that first collaboration, James has collected several awards that can be seen on his About the Artist Page at James McGrew Fine Art. You may also follow James McGrew Fine Art on Facebook.
James McGrew has been visiting Yosemite National Park since he was a boy with a sense of wonder and a palette full of color. Today he shares that wonder with visitors from across the globe. In my interview with James, we learned about what inspired him early on in his childhood and through his adult life. We wandered through Yosemite Village under the light of the stars as James shared some of his most cherished memories of this place he holds so close to his heart. The broadcast of the James McGrew Yosemite Peaches show was originally broadcast on air & streaming at KAAD-LP 103.5 FM Sonora, California.

The concept for the Yosemite Can O Peaches Radio Podcast was developed over the past several years. Each show will be recorded live from the trails of Yosemite National Park. Host John P. DeGrazio will share stories of how Yosemite influenced the lives of local artists, musicians, photographers, explorers, and a variety of other Yosemite experts with a tale to tell. The peaches represent the sweet reward of every exploration in nature. Special thanks to Thomas Wilmer for his kind generosity and mentorship. Tom also recorded the Outro for this show.
