Dave Pandl is an Allentown native and a graduate from William Allen High where the Canary rules. He escaped Pennsylvania in 1973 for California. There he attended college with a degree in Ornamental Horticulture, met and married Sara and eventually pursued a career as a Geographic Information Systems specialist. He and family, which by then included sons Max and Zac, relocated back to the Lehigh Valley in 1997, where he worked for PPL until retiring in 2016. He currently resides with Sara in a stone bank barn that was built in 1810, just outside of Emmaus.
One of Dave's favorite pursuits, besides working on the Barn, is listening to music and attending concerts. His musical taste is nothing if not eclectic. Through his friendship with Bill Dautremont-Smith, he was enticed to join the esteemed ranks of volunteers at WDIY and is currently an alternating host of the Blend and the World Blend programs.
