Coffee with Cool People: MyTalk 107.1’s Donny Love

In this edition of Coffee with Cool People, presented by our friends at Caribou Coffee, Steve chats it up with Donny Love.  Listeners know him as the voice of reason on the Lori and Julia Show on MyTalk 107.1 FM.  But it was an unlikely pairing of sorts that turned this show into a mainstay here in the Twin Cities.  Love had been working at a music station in Wisconsin.  His soon-to-be counterparts had no experience on-air.  The powers that be decided that they’d all be good for each other.  He heard them chirping as they walked down the hall.  They entered the meeting.  Made fun of his shoes.  Then decided they’d call him, previously known as Don Michaels “Donny Love.”  And with that, magic was made.

Over the last seventeen years, Love has become an integral part of the show, offsetting the comedic unpredictability of Lori and Julia with his well-reasoned asides.  It’s a sort of “opposites attract” formula that radio management hopes works.  And this one sure has.  The afternoon show is coming up on two decades on the air.  And if you ask listeners, they hope the fun has just begun.
