Dennis Christman

Program Host

Start your Saturday mornings on WDIY with Dennis Christman from 6 to 8 am on the Saturday Morning Mix - a well-crafted music program featuring Americana, folk, classic rock, 60’s pop, new rock, true country and a touch of jazz. From T. Rex to Tom Waits, there are plenty of “Oh, wow” moments plus weather, community announcements and ticket giveaways. A host at WDIY for the last 15 years, Dennis always finds his way to the studio before the rooster crows and takes you on an exciting musical journey that makes you jump out of bed and start your weekend with style!

Dennis also works at Polka King Jolly Joe Timmer’s radio station, the Lehigh Valley’s WGPA, in various capacities and, in his spare time, he is a burgeoning lyricist/poet who has recorded some lo-fi folky material with long-time friend Scott Stastny. He enjoys hanging out in dive bars and drinking cheap beer but, if he has the money, he drinks Guinness, unsuccessfully tries to pick up women and travels - sometimes when he does not have the money. Dennis is a huge fan of New Hope, Lambertville, Doylestown, Center City Philadelphia, and Manhattan - particularly the East Village. Last summer, he walked through all of Central Park. Dennis is convinced Austin, Texas is the greatest city in the world, although it is doubtful he will return there for a while. He is a libertarian-socialist and enjoys radio show Coast to Coast AM while pondering various conspiracy theories.

Dennis has not seen many movies recently however, when he does, he likes independent non-Hollywood films. Preferring morbid dramas, he does not really care for comedies and does not often watch television, but thinks there are a few worthwhile shows like Seinfeld and Breaking Bad. Dennis used to be a huge professional-wrestling fan, but has long since grown out of it. Occasionally, he still may watch Georgia Championship wrestling clips from 1981 on You Tube.
