Joanie grew up in New Jersey, just a stones throw from NYC where she attended an abundance of symphony, R&B, jazz, blues and folk concerts from a very young age. Her exposure to numerous Broadway and off Broadway musical shows added to her mix of musical experiences. To add to the mix, she would lie awake late at night and listen to bluegrass on her radio. As an adult, her tastes for music moved towards R&B and Jazz. Like most DJs at KLZR, Joanie started with Music Your Way. She now hosts Soul Jam, a program that showcases a lot of Motown, R&B and Soul music. Joanie is a founding board member of Wet Mountain Broadcasting Corp. She started and is responsible for the annual High Peaks Music Festival. As the KLZR Development Director she oversees all Outreach, PR and Fundraising efforts and encourages others to become involved, either on the air or behind the scenes. While not volunteering for one thing or another she spends time with her family and friends and loves tending her flower garden, weaving, knitting and exploring her family’s genealogy.
