weekends for Detroit rocker WABX. In 1976 he moved over to crosstown rocker WWWW to do a full time 10p to 2a shift. He eventually moved up to 6-10p which he held until the station flipped to Country in 1980.
After the W4 flip, Podell moved to Minneapolis to do the 6-10p shift and handle Music Director duties for KQRS. He was only there for exactly one year before Detroit came calling again. He's been a Detroit staple ever since.

Banger Music Hour :
How do you prepare for a show?
Danielle : Organization and
time management is key. I
make sure to have my gear
packed and ready the night
before a show and it’s always
good to have all details about
the venue in writing. I try to
get some time to warm up before hitting the stage.
BMH : Your most memorable stage moment?
Danielle : My old goth band opened
for David J of Bauhaus at the Yost
theater. All my friends and family
came to the show and it made me
happy seeing them in the crowd.
BMH: What's the best bass line you’ve ever heard?
Danielle : Rio bassline by Duran Duran
