John Nowacki

Originally from the Midwest, John’s interest in classical music began while he was a high school student, having discovered organ music recordings by E. Power Biggs and singing in the high school’s choirs. His radio career began in 1982 at WILL-FM in Champaign-Urbana, Ilinois, where he started as a board operator for local programming, then became a classical music host. He worked for several Illinois stations before making the move to WNPR in 1990.

John lives in Hartford, Connecticut with his husband and Myles the cat. He sings as a bass/baritone in the choir of St. John’s Episcopal Church, West Hartford. He also enjoys reading good Science Fiction, and biographies of 16th and 17th-century historical figures.
