Don says, “When I was nine and lived in New York, my mother took me to my first Broadway musical. It was Oklahoma. It was thrilling. I fell in love with musicals. I went to more, and fell deeper in love. When we moved to Los Angeles, I used to go to the the national tours when they came to town. When I was old enough I used to usher at them so I could see them free. They are still pure magic for me. When the house lights go down and the overture starts, I’m carried away. I hope my listeners are carried away, and feel that same magic.”
Don is also a past chair of the Port Townsend Arts Commission and has served on the Board of Directors of the Chamber of Commerce, the Port Townsend Economic Development Council, The Port Townsend Marine Science Center, and as President of Port Townsend Friends of the Arts. He first became involved with KPTZ when he began reading stories on Phil Andrus’ Tossed Salad some years ago.
