Thank You to Our 2016 Oaktoberfest in the Dimond Artists and Performers!

Sterling James
Master of Ceremonies
Sterling James has been a strong vocal presence on the FM dial in the Bay Area since 1987. Her consistent presence on major music radio stations and events across the Bay Area has led to high familiarity among the public, and her sassy, sharp personality has endeared her to a generation of fans. Mrs. James currently appears live on San Francisco heritage R&B 102.9 KBLX Monday through Friday 10:00AM-3:00PM, and Sundays from 9:00AM-2:00PM. A true Bay Area native, Sterling first hit the air at her high school radio station and never looked back.
