Sandy Macdonald

I grew up in Seattle listening to the battle of two local rock-n-roll AM stations, KJR and KOL.  In 1960 I was a casualty of the folk scare, although I held on to my rock-n-roll roots thanks to the Beatles.  I studied Radio-TV-Film at UT-Austin, where I ran a camera on early Austin City Limits shows.  I hosted folk music and jazz shows in Grand Junction, Colorado, before returning to Seattle in 1991.  KBCS has been my folk music home for 25 years.

I am now retired and spend my time enjoying the morning paper with an extra cup of coffee and ‘recreational’ music, playing in a band that performs at retirement and nursing homes.

Sandy hosts Sunday Folks , Sundays at 9am.
