Programming Volunteer Spotlight: DON MERRILL

Don Merrill is a relatively new volunteer here at KBOO, and has been on the air mostly as a news reporter. However, he’s also taken it upon himself to do a web only show called “The Talk”, where he interviews some of the more famous people who request air time on KBOO, as well as community advocates, authors, and anyone he feels like talking to!  I appreciate his willingness to jump into the studio with anyone, and his ability to create interesting and insightful audio.  Here is an interview I did with Don in October, 2012.

Introduce yourself...

 *Hi, people.  My name is Don Merrill and I do interviews.

What brought you to KBOO?

*I came to KBOO because I have always liked community based anything.
