David Klann got involved in radio when commercial broadcasting still provided the opportunity for employment and broadcast stations operated in the “public interest”. His career took a left turn when he was bitten by the personal computer bug. While honing skills in information technology he volunteered at Community Radio station WORT in Madison, WI where he helped with the production crew and with the tech crew. Klann moved “back to the land” in rural Western Wisconsin in the mid 2000’s where he group of others submitted an application for a full-power NCE station in the 2007 FCC filing window. Driftless Community Radio received its construction permit in March 2009 and WDRT went on the air on September 17, 2010. WDRT, 91.9fm has been on the air and on line ever since.

David has since started a small consulting operation, Broadcast Tool & Die LLC ( helping noncommercial Community Radio stations with their technical infrastructure, notably automation and streaming.
