About Susan ...

When Fine Arts producer and Afternoon Classical Music host, Susan McTaggart-Dennis came to WCMU Public Radio over 30 years ago, she was an avid listener to the ‘new’ public radio station in the area and in pursuit of her biology degree.  Delighted to find there was an opportunity to volunteer at the station, she started to help maintain the classical music library.  She didn’t aspire to a career in broadcasting, but when offered a part-time job at WCMU, she accepted, and eventually found her niche as a full-time staff member. She DID earn the science degree and added classes in broadcasting and music to the mix, and credits the knowledgeable and loyal listeners for making THIS unique career choice so rewarding.
