All posts by Don Janzen

Don Janzen is the host of Radio Nowhere. I came of age musically in the mid sixties. My first music memory is sitting n my neighbour's dad's semi cab and hearing She Loves You on the radio. That was it for me. A little later I graduated to the FM dial just in time to catch the great Detroit underground FM Rock era. I love the music made in that time but don't expect another version of a classic dinosaur rock station playing the same 20 songs all day. I'll be playing more deeper dive stuff from then. My tastes expanded to old blues and modern rock. So hopefully you hear some old favourites and a discover few new ones too. Let me know what you think.
