Daniel J. grew up playing stickball on the streets of New York when an old broom handle and a 10 cent rubber ball were all that was needed to keep a bunch of kids occupied for hours. His family life although by no means lavish was comfortable and happy with supportive parents who usually filled the house with music and the aroma of good Italian food . Frank Sinatra was revered and spoken of in God like tones by his Father and daily news of Frank’s latest concert or album was usually reserved for family conversation over meatballs and spaghetti.
With a street smart confidence and wide variety of interests Daniel J knew that although his love for baseball and music was very strong his abilities in both areas were quite limited. He embarked on a business career in International Banking when Banking was still considered an honorable trade. Traveling the world provided him with a knowledge of many cultures and a deeper appreciation for the freedom and liberties we take for granted at home. Rather than continue his career oversea he took a position in San Francisco and felt right at home with the cultural and lifestyle diversity there. He also decided that International Banking was no longer his passion and dove into a series of diverse careers that led him on many personal and professional adventures.
These experiences led him to New Mexico in the mid 1990’s and to KSFR in 2009. Now mostly retired and living in Albuquerque’s North Valley he enjoys his weekly music show and gets to mix the music of his formative years with the soundtrack of his life experiences as well as new artists and genres as they evolve. Public Radio has been a constant companion over the years and living in culturally rich cities like NY and San Francisco has exposed him to the best Public Radio has to offer. He enjoys being part of KSFR’s growth and development as part of the best of Public Radio.
Dan Piburn was born in Boulder Colorado in the heart of the sixties, June 8th, 1965. Raised in the small town of Carbondale Colorado, he spent a lot of time with his brother in nature ~ on the Crystal River and in the White River National Forest. His musical origins, he remembers were folk, blues, rock and jazz and later punk rock. During his early teens, his mother worked in a record store that also sold stereo equipment. He remembers the love of vinyl and watching hours of Monty Python in the 70’s on the first big screen tv in town!
After a dozen years in theater, in NYC, Pittsburgh, Chicago and LA during the 80’s and 90’s, Dan moved to Santa Fe with his soon- to- be- wife, Giselle. Dan has been a friend of KSFR since he moved to Santa Fe in ‘93. He’s been a friend of jazz since he fell down the rabbit hole some 20 plus years ago. His show, “JaZz Impressions” emerged on KSFR after years of subbing for many KSFR DJ’s across many genres. He loves jazz from its roots to its farthest branches and buds, and his show reflects that interest with passion. Jazz is, many times, the context by which he refers to our collective history, present and future. He also enjoys hearing from you and fielding your requests! Dan is a father of two, a neighborhood garden co/host and a licensed massage therapist with a lively bodywork practice in Santa Fe.
