Playlist for Ron Olesko @ wfdu at

DJ name: Ron Olesko
Bio: Ron Olesko grew up during the Folk Revival of the 1960’s and some of his earliest memories include being captivated by songs such as "Sloop John B." and "There's A Hole In The Bucket" being performed on the Captain Kangaroo TV show. In 1975 he enrolled at Fairleigh Dickinson University and joined WFDU-FM on his first day as a freshman and has been with the station ever since. Ron started as a DJ playing alternative rock interspersed with folk music. In 1977 he presented a program with Marjorie Guthrie as his guest, the widow of one of Ron's musical heroes, Woody Guthrie. From that point on, folk music became the centerpiece of Ron's radio work. In 1980, just after he graduated from FDU, Ron began the series “Traditions”, now WFDU-FM’s longest running program. Ron also appears on Sirius XM Satellite Radio's folk channel's The Village with his monthly show "The Folk Music Notebook" and was nominated in the Broadcaster Category for 2007 Folk Alliance Music & Business Awards. In addition, Ron is the President of the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club in Fair Lawn, NJ and also writes for Sing Out! Magazine. When taking a break from folk music, Ron can either be found in Section 112 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey on game day or sitting in his den watching his beloved New York Mets.
