Dan McHugh

I’m Dan, the membership director at WCPE, The Classical Station. I started out as an intern back in the summer of 2009 while studying history at NC State University. I loved listening to the music and wanted to be a part of the station.

Since then, I’ve really gotten into early music. I play the harpsichord (I have two of them, a French double and an Italian virginal) and am a member of the Historical Keyboard Society of North America. I attend conferences every year and have even been as far away as Spain!

I love working at WCPE. The people really make the place special, especially the listeners who call in. I still enjoy announcing from time to time, usually on the weekends and during the fundraisers. I think the most important thing about announcing is sharing my enthusiasm for the music with everyone.
