Willie McDonagh DJ Profile

I have long loved radio's rare power to connect people over air and also the sick tracks that it offers. I grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and went to school in Minnesota, where I DJed for my college station. I fill some of my free time with Scrabble, making stew, and trying to write a good song. My musical interests include lonesome guitar pickers, fresh classical music, and fiery crooners.

Listen to Willie's two most recent shows below:
