Paul Berenson landed his first radio show in Santa Barbara, CA in 1970. A life long lover of music, exploration of the vast music collection in KCSB was like a dream come true. He says, "One of my favorite things in life is introducing people to new music." He continued doing various music shows at KCSB through 1974. After taking a break from radio to study oil painting, he returned to KCSB in 1981. He did some news commentary and a classical music show. In 1982 he moved to the popular commercial classical FM station KDB.

Over his twenty one years there he became a fixture in the musical world of Santa Barbara. He hosted the broadcasts of most local orchestras, including The Santa Barbara Symphony, The Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, Camerata Pacifica, and Opera Santa Barbara among others. He was the host of "Classics till Midnight" on weekends, and "Opus 94" Monday through Friday afternoons. He also hosted the KDB Opera and reviewed opera, ballet, and theater from L.A. to San Francisco to Ashland, Oregon. KDB was sold and the staff dismissed on April Fool's Day, 2003.

Next, Berenson wrote and hosted a political commentary show "Another Side of the News" on KCSB. In 2004 he entered the number two market in the nation when he landed a show at KCSN Los Angeles. He hosts California Calling Wednesday nights. It's a program of Classic Rock by bands with a California connection.

In January 2005 he started at News Radio 990 KTMS, the number one rated Clear Channel station in Santa Barbara. He hosts "Your Afternoon Connection with Paul & Palmer." Along with Republican co-host Russell Palmer this fast paced show has top local and national guests, along with commentary and analysis. It's slated to replace Dr. Laura from 3-6 pm Monday through Friday on April Fool's Day, 2005.
