Dave Kurten

Growing up in an Air Force family I never lived in one place for more that three years at a time. When I came to Centre County I thought it was just another stop on life’s journey. Now that I have been here for two decades, it looks like I have found a home. The friendly people and the charities I am able to help through 3WZ have made me feel a part of the community. I started in radio in 1981. It was something I wanted to do even as a child. My friends and I would make up shows on a cassette recorder. Then one day I won a radio contest. When my father took me to the station to pick up my prize, they gave me a tour of the studio. When I saw my favorite DJ sitting behind the glass in his booth, I thought it was the coolest thing I had ever seen (in all of my 6 years). I told my dad on the ride home that that is what I wanted to do when I grow up. As he always told me I could do anything I set my mind to. Turns out he was right.
