Board of Directors-Chair

I am finishing my 3rd year on the WXPR Board and am the current Board Chair. We have a great group of hard working Board members and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the excellent staff and wonderful volunteers. My enthusiasm for the Station has only increased over time. I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the members of WXPR.

He could talk about jazz and big band with authority, but classical was his true love.  He played the piano, and early in his life had played the standup bass.  Upon retiring as publisher of the Rhinelander Daily News (currently named Northwoods River News), Dick showed up at the doors of WXPR asking to volunteer as on-air host for one of the classical programs.
