Afternoon Freeform Host

I've been a volunteer DJ at KUNM since 1982, when I did my first overnight Freeform with barely a clue, after having attended the Oliver-Stone-teach-yourself-to-be-a-DJ class. Eventually, I learned the ropes well enough to graduate to Afternoon Freeform, where I've been ever since. Currently, I host every other Friday, alternating with Harry Norton.

 I'm moderately obsessed with music, and I have a very particular sensibility. While that sensibility extends to all genres, I'm only interested in the tracks that strike me as extra good in some way, tracks that I love hearing again and again. That sensibility spills over into my shows of course, where every selection is hand-picked for your extra-good listening pleasure. Hosting Afternoon Freeform is one of my very most favorite things in the whole world, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share my musical discoveries with you. Oh yeah -- I love accordion; and polka. And I used to be KUNM Development Director, from 1989 to 2006.
