John Patrick

Host / Music Director

I was born and raised in Peru, Indiana, along with musician Cole Porter and basketball player Kyle Macy, but not at the same time. They were a bit older. Cole’s niece was in love with me in the 1st grade. Little did I know, she was one of the heirs to his publishing fortune, or I might have shown more interest. Hind sight is 20/20, especially in the 1st grade.

I didn’t know what I wanted to do after high school and today I’m still not sure. I started in radio in Peru, right out of high school in 1983. I spent most of the late '80s and early '90s in the world’s greatest college town, Bloomington, Indiana, which has an incredible local music scene. I was Music Director at WTTS during this time, back when they were a great new Triple A station.

I’ve done just about every job in radio, even Sales and Management, which are ok, but being able to play great music every day is best. I think it’s safe to say that no one has had more luck or more fun than me.

There’s always more than one great song on a album!

Thanks for listening to WNKU.
