Rochester NY Radio: WCMF's Dave Kane Celebrates 40-Years

Dave Kane

WCMF 96.5 FM Rochester's midday host Dave Kane, a.k.a. “Kane-O,” joins a distinguished group of broadcast professionals across the country as he reaches 40 years with one radio station. Kane-O and WCMF will celebrate his 40th year with the station on Monday, February 22 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET.

“I've always said that I am blessed to have found, a job that I love to do in a place where I love to do it,” said Kane. “My longevity in Rochester is a testament to the quality of life here, and certainly most of all, to the dedicated rockers who have not only supported WCMF for over a half century, but who have fostered and sustained a vibrant rock and roll scene in Rochester for decades.” 

“I still marvel at the amount of incredible experiences I've had, the places I've been, the musicians and shows I've had access to, and the people I've met,” added Kane. “I'm extremely fortunate to have worked with so many amazing, talented people over the many years, and most of all, the connection...this incredible bond that has been forged with the audience and the local community that is the most satisfying and humbling to me.”

“Forty years on the air at one radio station is unprecedented in Rochester radio and hard to come by anywhere else in the country,” said Susan Munn, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom Rochester. “So many Rochesterians have grown up with WCMF and Dave Kane and to have him still rockin’ on WCMF 40 years later makes people feel very connected to the station and to him.” Kane launched his career with WCMF on middays in 1981.
