Macadio Namoki is from the Village of Mishungnovi, but born and raised in the Village of Walpi, where he currently resides and participates in ceremonies. Macadio and his wife Samantha Ami have a lovely daughter, Mia Lee Namoki, who is their pride and joy. Macadio has been with the station since July 2008, and his duties consist of the daily business operations, financial management, coordinating underwriting contracts & product sales, managing contributions, memberships & donations, assist in planning & developing programs, and supporting station operations. Prior to joining KUYI Macadio was employed at the Hopi Cultural Center where he served as Human Resource/Payroll Administrator. Prior to that Macadio attended Arizona State University majoring in Pre-Nursing and Native American Studies. Macadio Namoki is also a veteran of the United States Navy. His interest in radio evolved while in the Navy due to being out to sea at months at a time; radio seemed to soothe the loneliness of not being home, especially on the reservation.
The Davis family, mother Inge and sister Gillian, moved to the northern suburbs of Chicago where Richard got his first taste of radio in New Trier High School's Radio Workshop before heading out to Maine and then Ohio where he attended the College of Wooster, focusing on contemporary American Indian literature and DJ'ing at WCWS.
Upon graduating Richard made a bee-line to Flagstaff where the next decade and a half saw him working against family violence, spending eight years at NFHC's Domestic Violence shelter, while juggling music recording and concert production with Greenhouse Productions as well as co-founding the northern Arizona chapter of No More Deaths / No Mas Muertes.
Richard specializes in multi-track recording and sees community radio as the perfect blend of social justice and entertainment. As a kid he used to stay up way too late, pull the covers over his head and listen to Wolfman Jack and Doctor Demento. Shhh, don't tell his mom.
