Dusty Radio slowly began in 2009 when longtime friends Tage Plantell and Mike Smith who previously knew each other from performing shows together with their respective bands On Second Thought and The Mercury Project decided to build a new band around the new music that Plantell had written since working with On Second Thought.

In 2010 Kyle Zender, previously of Seismic Event, joined the band as the bass player. In 2011 Tad Lusk previously of American Idol's Blake Marvin Band, joined Dusty Radio on lead guitar. The group is currently recording their first album together and projects a release date in Winter 2012.
