Dan Martin grew up in Southeast Michigan listening to Motown music, The Beatles, Barry Manilow, Dionne Warwick, The Carpenters and other sixties and seventies favorites. He toured his first radio station when he was seven-years-old, and discovered he wanted to be a disc jockey.
By junior high, he was listening to Steve Miller, Boston, Led Zeppelin and other classic rock. He was inspired to start a band after seeing "A Hard Day's Night," but never did find the thousands of screaming girls he thought that having a band would bring.
Dan has a lovely and brilliant wife, as well as two sons and two cats. He's worked in radio for more than 30 years, spinning oldies in Lansing, Saginaw, and Ann Arbor, as well as playing other genres of music, and making commercials. He loves "Star Trek," "Star Wars," and "Doctor Who," as well as "Jeopardy" and "Call The Midwife."
He keeps practicing his Höfner bass in the hopes of one day becoming Paul McCartney...but until then he'll be spinning the records for you, and singing along...but with the microphone off.
