Daniel W. Long

Host of the Grooveyard

Daniel came by jazz and public radio through his first love, 20 th -century American Literature, when he was nineteen, and shortly thereafter found WEMU. After listening and being an active volunteer for the station for ten years, he joined the staff in 2010 to produce the program From Memphis to Motown, advancing to handling many other production roles in the station.

For the last 7 years, Daniel has tended the flowers in the Groove Yard, every Sunday from 1 P.M. to 3 P.M., where he explores the legacy of the modern jazz movement of the 1950s and 1960s, and the advancement the LP record format had on that era. In 2018, Daniel began hosting the Groove Break every Monday from 12 P.M. to 2 P.M., where he juxtaposes the contemporary scene against those classics from the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s.
