Artie McDonnell

Born In Buffalo,New York when rotary phones and party lines were still in use, Artie McDonnell moved to Overland Park, Kansas in 1965 kicking and screaming the whole way here! I thought my parents had lost there minds and when I encountered my First 100 degree day I KNEW they were Nuts for moving here.

I went to Nallwood Junior High School, then Shawnee Mission South H.S.and I attended Johnson County Community College and the University of Kansas.

I choose to volunteer at KKFI because it’s the last REAL radio station left in our CITY!
We still allow our programmers to program their own shows!!!! No corporate playlists to adhere to, no commercials to clutter our airwaves!

Programmer for these shows :

The Voodoo Kittens offer a special breed of afternoon blues entertainment. We start with the old masters and end up with contemporary blues. Along the way, the Kittens keep it real by throwing in musical styles which are offshoots of blues or were heavily influenced by and/or blended with blues to produce new sounds: rockabilly, R&B, early soul, country, jazz, zydeco, Cajun, swamp pop, and anything else that might temporarily sway our feline senses.
