Dan is a WWII veteran that served in both the Pacific and European theaters.  He went on to be a crop duster, then worked for Central Airlines in their sales department.  In 1954, he went to work for KGNC as a weatherman for $1 per program.  He became a Legend with his humor and brilliance.​  His forecasts dominated the ratings and his name was more recognizable than Elvis.   He invented the "beep-beep-beep" to alert listeners to emergency weather information.  

He lived on a ranch in the Palo Duro Canyon and  later wrote two of his books on eagles from his experiences there.  He is still considered a world expert on both eagles and hummingbirds.   Check out his bird houses on the MENU.

Happy HUMMING!!!
