Michael Danahy

Michael Danahy is a producer, co-host and special correspondent for Local Motives, WMPG’s long-running, mostly live always local music show, now entering its 30th year of documenting and nurturing local music. Michael has recently returned to Portland and is volunteering as co-host of Local Motives to reacquaint himself with what’s going on musically in Southern Maine. He hosted The Friday Quilting Bee from 1990 to 2002 and featured much local music. In a former life he performed at colleges, festivals and listening rooms around New England, retiring from the music biz in 1997. He currently records music as an amateur (not for money but for the love of it).
