Bill Bukowski joined Classical WETA in July 2013 as the weekday afternoon on-air host on Classical WETA 90.9 FM. He will also announce for WETA’s all-vocal classical radio service, VivaLaVoce.
He grew up in Philadelphia, inspired by music in his parent’s household and by the city’s rich radio offerings, including classical music on WFLN. Bukowski graduated from the University of Scranton in 1983 and the following year moved to the Delmarva Peninsula to work in commercial radio, transitioning to public radio in 1993 as weekend producer-announcer on WSCL, where three years later he became mid-day classical music host.
Bukowski and his wife, Michele, now reside in Northern Virginia, where they enjoy concerts, plays, art galleries and museums, history, reading, cooking, travel, and taking tea together. Bill is an avid music collector, and plays guitar, mountain dulcimer and ukulele.
