Don became a fan of the classics after listening to his Mom and Dad's â€œAmerican Graffitiâ€ soundtrack.
He was bitten by the radio bug after his 4-H club in Williamsburg, KY produced a week's worth of broadcasts from the local radio station.
Don's first radio job was in 1985 at KQTY in Borger, TX, and since then he's worked at stations in Texas, New Mexico, and now Oklahoma. Don has held almost every possible job found at a radio station, except for owning one (so far). Don began working at Kool 105.5 in April 2012.
When he's not at work, Don enjoys reading, drawing, web design, cooking, classic TV and the occasional karaoke night out. He lives in Chickasha with his son Jason.
