Born and raised in Chicago, Don grew up listening to the iconic WXRT.
Moving to California in 1989 Don was amazed to find no station like WXRT in the number two radio market, Los Angeles. Further fueling his desire for quality radio, Don earned his degree from Cal-State Los Angeles majoring in Broadcast Communications - Radio, Television and Film.
Fast forward to 2008, Don got his start at KSBR hosting various specialty program formats: contemporary jazz, downtempo/chill out and New Age. In 2014 Don with good friend and fellow 88.5 FM colleague, JJ Buchanan, started hosting "The Blend Radio Show" to much local Orange County success.
Living in Dana Point, Don not only feels blessed and grateful but quite at home and back to his original radio roots broadcasting at the new and iconic radio station, 88.5 FM!
