Dan Warren

Dan Warren: I was born and raised in Dunkirk NY. That's where I started working in radio in high school. To be honest, I actually had a radio station in my attic at home, but it consisted of a record player, an old reel to reel tape machine and a plastic microphone I found in our basement. So I guess that doesn't count. I worked at WDOE in Dunkirk, and WBUZ in Fredonia (before the FCC yanked their license). I am a SUNY Alfred grad, and a SUNY Fredonia grad. I was also fortunate enough to work at WPHD-FM in Buffalo. I worked in beautiful Punta Gorda, Florida for a year before returning back home to work in Jamestown.  I love waking everyone up with the "My County Morning Show" on WHUG. My other job: I have my own business, Dan Warren's Entertainment Express. I provide music for parties, weddings, school dances and such. I also have a complete karaoke set-up which I take out quite frequently. Maybe I'll see you out and about some time, or if you're in need of a disc jockey for an event, give me a holler! Dan plays great Lite Rock each weekday from 9am-Noon on WJTN. Email Dan

Lee John

As a child, I would sit at our kitchen table and listen to the old radio on our counter belt out the sound of the morning "Disc Jockey". He would introduce the Top 40 Hits, give the weather forecast, talk to the "Characters" that called in, do interviews and contests. Radio was very "Magical" to me. I began pretending I was a "Disc Jockey" when I was about ten years old and actually have a tape of me when I was twelve, hosting the " Lee John Morning Show", doing interviews, comedy, telling stories and giving a "Play by Play" account of the "GUY LOMBARDO NEW YEARS EVE PARTY" on the TV. I started to do impressions when I was a kid, like Ed Sullivan, W.C. Fields, Kermit the Frog, etc. By the time I was 16 years old I did over 100 voices. I entertained at parties, fairs, and in theater productions in High School and did some voiceover work for my local radio station. I got my first job in Radio during my first year in College.  Lee plays great Lite Rock each weekday from Noon-3:00 on WJTN.  Email Lee
