Growing up in Colorado Springs, Dan found his passion for classic rock in high school, rockin’ out to Def Leppard, Guns N Roses and Van Halen. He’s been a die-hard radio guy since the moment his dad gave him his first Marantz FM receiver when he was 7. When he was 10, he would call the radio station weekly asking for a job doing anything, even sweeping the floors.
Dan went on to study Broadcasting at Colorado State University-Pueblo and got his first glamorous gig a month after graduation, cleaning the prize closets and setting up station tents. He then got his first on-air gig in Colorado Springs on a soft rock station, before taking him to Denver where he ultimately landed on a classic rock station getting to play the music he loved, before joining the WCMF crew in 2021.
First thing you’ll notice about Dan: HE’S SUPER TALL at 6 foot 8, which made crowd surfing at concerts quite interesting! Even though he doesn’t play basketball, he’ll always help you get an item off the top shelf at Wegmans. On the weekends, you’ll find Dan grabbing a few brews on the patio with the buds, hosting trivia shows, DJing weddings and parties or hiking or biking somewhere fun.
