Daniel W. Long

Producer, Host of the Grooveyard

Daniel is an Ypsilanti native. A graduate of Willow Run Community Schools, he studied American Literature with a minor in Theatre, Media, and Communications at Eastern Michigan University. While his education path has been winding with several stops along the way, Daniel graduated in 2014 with his Bachelor's of Science from EMU. Daniel lives in Chelsea with his wife, and their beautiful children.

Daniel came by jazz and public radio through his first love, 20th-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 was hired in 2010 to produce the program From Memphis to Motown, advancing to handling many other production roles in the station.
