Meet the DJs - Jane Powers

DJ Jane PowersMy connection to SATW began in the early 1990s when I was a regular listener to the show. A couple of years back, a college friend (who knew I always secretly wanted to become a DJ) heard that SATW was looking to expand the collective of hosts, and much to my amazement, I got trained and joined the show in 2003. Since I was a kid, I've loved radio - music, talk, news, features, sports - college, commercial, community, you name it. Getting to be a host for this show was a spectacular stroke of good fortune. I love the "freeform" format of WMFO, and focusing on music by women artists is close to my heart and my politics. When I host the show, I do a feature called a "Six Pack," in which I play six songs either by one artist or connected to one theme... and listener suggestions are always welcome!
