For the past 10 years, DJ Duncan Strauss has driven a long commute (all the way from Jupiter!) to work tirelessly and for free, championing the rights of animals and the tunes that they inspire on his beloved 88.5-FM radio show Talking Animals, which celebrates its decade anniversary this week.
Throughout the years, the show has had celeb pet lovers like Jane Goodall, Alec Baldwin, Temple Grandin, Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau), Bob Barker, Janeane Garofalo and even Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
Salute Strass and tune into a broadcast of popular local artists, like Rebekah Pulley, Ronny Elliott, Judy Tampa, Harry Hayward, Anne Van Atta, and some other notable locals.
It's also the first Talking Animals in June not preempted by the station's fund drive. Hey, another reason to tune in.
What are your favorite animal-themed tunes, tune into Strauss' show and let him know!
The 10th Anniversary Talking Animals Show aired live 9 a.m. Wed., June 19. If you missed it, listen on the station's archive at wmnf.org.
