Photo Name About
Mike McB Mike is our intrepid morning man. Join Mike every morning from 6 – 10 AM. Mike has lived the era and remembers it too! His show is peppered with interesting music knowledge! From 8-10 AM Mike and Amy D. team up for some extra radio fun! Mike has one fantastic set of ‘pipes’!
Nora Gail Nora holds down the fort from 10 A.M. until noon on Mondays through Thursdays. She is a child of the 50’s and 60’s and a young adult of the 70’s. (She says she’s still a young adult!) So she is truly a “child of WREN” and revels in reminding us all of the music and the era itself. Tune her in for some fun, some history and lots of great oldies.
Murphy Join Murphy from 12 Noon – 3 PM weekdays. Nobody does more show prep than Murphy! He is very much musuic savvy and is a significant part of the team that chooses the wide range of oldies music that you hear on WREN. His show relects his music smarts!
Jon Hall Jon is on from 3 – 7 PM weekdays. He has been in or around radio most of his life. He was on Charlottesville and Lynchburg radio from 1973 to 1981 and then worked behind the scenes in radio engineering. Join Jon for great oldies and a bit of music and general history!
Dan Thomas You’ll hear Dan Saturday and Sunday from 12 – 3 PM. Dan is our very first volunteer having been on WREN almost since it’s inception two years ago. Dan worked behind the scenes for CBS in New York and brings a lifetime of experience to WREN.
Harry Wiser Harry is heard from 3 -7 PM on Sundays. He previously worked at WCVA and WJMA in Culpeper. He is our consummate, traditional Top 40 radio DJ!
