About Ethan


Why radio?
I’ve always loved music and after many less-than-successful years trying to play the piano and the viola growing up I’ve found the perfect way to satisfy my passion and get paid to do it!

Why CLZ?
When I was offered the position of program director I couldn’t believe my good fortune. After all these years of playing what I was told to play I finally had the opportunity to play the music I really love. And now when I discover something new that I think deserves some airtime, I don’t have to look at the charts, I just put it on the radio!

What would people be most surprised to learn about you?
I have two daughters. Ages five and 27!

What was your first concert?
My first show would have been at City Hall Auditorium (now Merrill) to see the Portland Symphony Orchestra. My mother was a violinist in the symphony! The first show I really enjoyed was The Kinks at the Civic Center in ’82 or ’83.

TV shows you can’t miss?
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. I love the fact that he’s as funny as they come and yet is one of the best interviewers I’ve ever seen. And, The Office…squirm…laugh…squirm…laugh.

What is your favorite place in Maine?
Monhegan Island. There’s nothing quite like taking the ferry out of New Harbor and arriving in what seems like another world. Oh, and I’m partial to Bradbury Mountain.

What is your secret talent?
I can balance (almost) anything I can lift on my chin including a guitar and a 24-foot extension ladder.

Most embarrassing moment?
I was working my first radio job at a small station in Sedona, Arizona but I was also a waiter at an upscale restaurant. One night I recommended our house dressing – black-pepper vinaigrette. Except the word "pepper" didn’t come out quite right.
