Daniel W. Long

Host of the Grooveyard

Before joining the WEMU team in 2010, Daniel Long was a listener and active WEMU volunteer. He first came to the artform we call jazz through his first love: 20th century American Literature. It was through the depiction of a raucous Charlie Parker club date that gave Daniel a thirst to know more.

Initially hired to be the producer for From Memphis to Motown, over the years Daniel helped in the library, produced occasionally for Linda Yohn and Michael Jewett, and guest hosted where needed. In 2015 he took over the care and presentation of The Groove Yard every Sunday from 1 P.M. to 3 P.M., and in 2018 began hosting The Groove Break every Monday from noon to 2 P.M.

In his time not at WEMU, Daniel enjoys playing vinyl LPs, reading, cooking, and writing poetry, essays, and music reviews.
