Melissa stumbled into a career in broadcasting many years ago when she moved to Wichita, Kansas to be near her soon-to-be husband. The attraction (to radio work, that is) was immediate, and the chance to be around great music without having to practice piano was irresistible. After establishing herself as a host and producer in Kansas, Melissa moved to Minnesota and continued her work in St. Paul. Her morning classical show was twice named "Best Classical Radio Program" by the Twin Cities paper City Pages. When she's away from the airwaves, Melissa loves to run, read, and spend time with her family.
John got started in broadcasting as a news anchor at his high school's closed-circuit television station, and then at St. Olaf College in Minnesota. After a dozen years doing virtually everything there was to do at a small public radio station, John crossed over into the private sector, doing audio production and narration for a major educational publishing company, managing translation projects for an international communications company, and generally learning what it's like to work for a living. Having seen the light, John returned to radio in 1992. After deciding his zen garden was too much of a headache, John looks for enlightenment on the tennis court and the billiard table instead.
