Dwight Davis

Dwight Davis

Bright and beautiful music served up by Hampton Roads classical morning announcer for three decades, Dwight Davis. Enjoy music by the masters as well as delightful lesser-heard classical music, along with news, weather, traffic reports and a poem for the day from The Writers Almanac.  Weekdays morning from 5AM-10AM.

 

Dwight takes you back to a more genteel time, when music was made in the home. Enjoy songs that were sung around the piano after dinner, works played on the old upright in the parlor, great singers from the past, like John McCormack, whose cylinder recordings brought romantic songs into the home.  Sunday afternoons at 3PM. 

 

Birdnotes is a result of Dwight's long-time interest in birds. A short feature that can be about almost any aspect of bird life, from migration to coloration, to birds in art to song.

90.3 WHRO-FM

 

 

Dwight Davis has been working in classical music radio since 1973. A graduate of Norview High School and Elon College, he served in the Army, then taught science, until an opening appeared at WGH-FM. With no radio experience, he was, by his own admission, not a particularly good announcer. But his love and knowledge of music held him in good stead. He came to WHRO-FM in 1983, and is now WHRO-FM Program Director.

Though by nature not a morning person, Dwight has been a morning host for most of his radio career. In addition to his "Morning Classics" and the Sunday afternoon "From the Parlor" programs, his "Bird Notes" feature on Sunday mornings has an enthusiatic following.

Dwight and his wife Holly live in Norfolk. They have twin daughters, Whitney and Emily. You can reach Dwight at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
