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 Arlington Heights and went to school in St. Paul, Minnesota, where I was part of the college station WMCN. Since moving back to Illinois, I've worked writing audio description for television. I fill some of my free time with playing the guitar 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:
