Don developed an interest in radio as a kid, when he began listening to Pete and his cohorts Dennis Elsas and Vin Scelsa. "WFUV reminded me that there is still a community of people who like all kinds of good music and who like it presented in a down-to-earth, friendly, and entertaining fashion," Don says. "No hype, no screaming. Just a mutual love and respect for the music."
Don manages to squeeze in the time to work at WFUV from his full-time career doing media production for businesses and freelance voiceover work. He spends most of his spare time thinking about next week's Mixed Bag. Plus he still enjoys watching the Mets.
Don lives in New Jersey with his wife, Kathy, the Collections Registrar at The Museum of Modern Art. Both his daughters attended Fordham. Kate worked in the WFUV news department and is now a reporter for WAMU, the NPR affiliate in Washington, D.C. Annie works in government relations for The New York City Housing Authority.
