Dana Marshall: Morning Radio, Prince and a Podcast
Dana Marshall loves radio, loves the music of Prince, and has found the perfect audio life balance with both. He does mornings and is program director at 103.3 WKFR in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He is currently seeking a co-host for that morning show, so if you think that is you - apply within. Much like Melz On the Mic, who was a guest on the podcast in June 2018, Dana knows local, social and vital.
Our meeting at the Conclave in 2018 led to a discussion about podcast which then led to the creation of the My Prince Story Podcast. The show is now in its second season and is the 4th most downloaded amongst the 14 we work with. Dana and I also get into the weeds about what ails radio, but also why we get excited about it too. He also challenged me to think about how we would have handled a pandemic in 1995 without solid internet.
I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I loved recording it! It's a wonderful discussion.
Dana is the host of the My Prince Story Podcast. If you love Prince, you will love meeting new fans just like you. Scroll through the podcast and check out the episodes. Please subscribe or follow the podcast if you enjoy it.
Finally, this is episode 200 of the podcast. We had other plans for 200 including a live show and some other bells and whistles that were going to take place in Toronto over the course of Canadian Music week, but alas it has fallen victim to the Corona Virus Pandemic. While we are disappointed we didn't get to do a live recording in front of a studio audience, we will save this idea for another date and another time.
