Don O. Has Been KNON's Blues Champion for 30 Years. Here's to 30 More

Don O. has been playing blues records on 89.3 KNON for thirty years now.

He was there when KNON broadcast out of an old house with no air conditioning and he's never been late for a single airshift (despite 20 miles of traffic each way). He's since been informally knighted as the KNON historian, and has maintained a simple and workable website on DFW Blues.

On October 20th he'll be the center of a big celebration for the mark and toast it with live blues, free BBQ, and cake at Poor David's Pub. Hopefully, Don will follow that with another 30 years of keeping Freddie King on the radio. Don tells all this better than anyone can, so the floor is his. Happy 30th from DC9, Don.
