I am the new cohost on KMSO’s Mountain Morning Show on 102.5 Mountain fm. I am also the Educational Outreach Coordinator for the Montana Repertory Theatre, a professional theatre company in residence at the University of Montana’s School of Theatre and Dance, where I also serve as an adjunct instructor and publicity coordinator. I received my MFA from UM in 1991 in Acting/Directing and continues to act as much as possible. Recently I produced, directed and acted in the local production of Parallel Lives by Kathy Najimy and Mo Gaffney. With my comedy partner Rosie Ayers, we can be seen several times a year doing stand-up and sketch comedy featuring The Home Shopping Girls, on local Missoula, MT stages.
I love talking into a mic and now I get to do it Monday thru Friday morning with Rick! Pinch me. I also love to make people laugh…I guess Rick thought that was the perfect recipe for becoming his new Mountain Morning co-host! It is a blessing to try to fill Kim’s shoes…luckily we are about the same size.
I grew up in McMinnville Oregon. Radio started for me at a small Community College in Gresham, Oregon where I got horrible grades in all my classes except my radio classes….and right then and there I realized that radio must be my true calling! Either radio, or being a drying paint watcher…radio seemed more fun! My 1st real radio job at age 19 In Kelso, Washington paid $600 a month working the exciting and riveting hours of midnight-6! Turntables, records (those circular vinyl things) and a live microphone….I was in Valhalla (Even though I had only 4.8 listeners)!!
My good friend Monte Turner offered me a job here in Missoula Mt (I’d never even been to Montana before) in 1984, and I’ve been here ever since! I love long walks on the beach, puppies, and sunsets (but lets keep that between us, ok?)
Ed “Fast Eddie” Donohue
Just so you know, I got my name from an old radio guy named Wolfman Jack. We did a radio show in Great Falls some years (decades) ago. He called me Fast Eddie and it stuck. I’m pretty much convinced that this name is better than the one I was given to use on the air at a station in California. Harry Wolff. What do you think? Okay, so, here are a few more things you should know:
1) I can quote Star Trek better than you and all your friends, so don’t even try.
2) I know the difference between your and you’re, but I won’t lash out when you make that mistake…again. Different story, though, for could of and could HAVE!
3) One day I woke up & I felt bad because blink-182 broke up. Then I remembered all the small things and I went back to sleep and woke up the following morning and decided to be on the radio, so here I am.
Thanks for listening.
I was born and raised in California; riding bikes with friends and listening to The California Sound. In my teen, I met a friend who worked at KNDI in Sacramento from 6pm-10pm. (That’s where I was infected with the bug.) I moved to Missoula in 1978. At that time, the best place in town for a job was the “Trading Post Saloon.” I was a bartender for 2 years before getting hired at KYLT/AM December 1st, 1980. (A week later John Lennon was shot and killed.) What a crazy way to start your career. I worked overnights from 10pm-6am. For a couple of years, before the company started KYLT/FM, I moved over to do evening and a weekend jazz show.
KYLT/FM turned into KZOQ in 1983, where I remained until 2006. After hanging up my headphones, I had a career change into television where I was a Master Control Operator for KTMF/FOX in Missoula. Never Quite Losing that passion for radio, I received a call to come back and play. I started working at Mountain Broadcasting in 2011 where I continued to shake up the afternoons. “No Better Feeling!” I have two daughters, and two grandsons. My hobbies are golf, fishing, and playing with four of my best friends in our band, “Mid Life Crisis.” My personal quote: “What a long, strange trip it’s been…and I wouldn’t have trade it for the world.”
I am on the air from 2pm-6pm. Tune in and let me play your favorite hits. Remember you can call in your favorites for the 5 o’colock Flashback.
