Pat Gallagher



Jonathan Suttin has been waking up Madison for the last ten years.  Although he won't toast your bagel or make your kid's lunch, he will do his best to put a smile on your face and stimulate your grey matter.  Jonathan may hail from Chicago and have an undying and unhealthy allegiance to the Chicago White Sox, but he is also a proud graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a card carrying member of Section O.

Kitty Dunn grew up in Stevens Point, where she is proud to say she was "free-range" kid, riding her purple Schwinn around the neighborhood, playing Kick-the-Can, and watching a little too much television. (Okay..way too much television). She got her first radio job while still in high school, reporting on exciting news events like water and sewer commission meetings.

Kitty graduated from UW-Stevens Point, where she learned a lot of great drinking games, and also honed her radio skills at the college radio station, WWSP (90FM). Since then, she's worked at commercial radio stations in Stevens Point, Eau Claire and Madison, and even worked for state government for a couple years (but she doesn't like to talk about that).

Kitty's been waking you up early on Triple M since 1993, where she's worked with two Johns and a Jonathan. People often ask her, "do you ever get used to getting up so early?" She says no..but she does get used to being tired.

Away from work, Kitty loves going to garage and estate sales (ask her about her talking Charlie the Tuna doll in the original packaging), riding her bike and sampling micro-brews.

Hometown: Stevens Point

My first job was: news reporter at a radio station in Wisconsin Rapids, when I was still in high school.

Pat Gallagher is a Madison boy through and through. Born & raised in the area (Oregon High School), his entire family still lives in Madison (listen for Pat's mom on the air with Jonathan and Kitty when she does the Lutefisk report every Fall). You can hear Pat from 9:30 am to 2pm every weekday on Triple M, where he’s hosted the Radio Deli since 1999. Pat gets a real thrill when artists show up at the station for interviews and in-studio performances. Some of the artists he's interviewed include Blues Traveler, Phish, Dave Matthews Band, David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Soul Asylum, Ziggy Marley, The BoDeans, Barenaked Ladies and Widespread Panic.

When he's not on the air, you'll probably find Pat either at home with his wife and pets or biking, running or swimming. Pat is in training for the 2009 Ironman Wisconsin after successfully completing his first Ironman in 2008!

"My name is Ed Johnson I come from Wisconsin". I always thought that my Autobiography would start with those words. Born in Baraboo Wisconsin with a craving for cheese it seems I was brought into the world according to plan. As a child I "played radio" with my brother Kurt. We set up a radio station in our families camper. Using a CB as a transmitter we went to work. Channel 19 seemed the logical choice offering the largest "cume" (RADIO SPEAK: cumulative audience) of truckers and trucker wannabe's. I can only imagine the joy we brought those truckers passing the Baraboo valley one very warm 4th of July weekend in the early 70's.

Hometown:  Baraboo, WI (and Waukesha)

My first job was: Circus World Museum, Baraboo WI.  I put stickers under the windshield wipers of cars in the lot. They said "Tommy Bartlets Water Show" on them. I had to wear a bright orange jump suit. (prisoners wear those now)

If I wasn't in radio I'd be: A street car conductor.

Right-handed or Left-handed?: Righty Tighty

CD's I'd have if I was stranded on a desert island:  Beatles "Abbey Road"  , Counting Crows "August and Everything After", BoDeans "Love And Hop And Sex And Dreams" , and the audio book: "How To get Yourself Off a Desert Island"

Favorite Day of the Year:  The fist day of the year that it turns 70. Because winter is almost over AND I get free bear at the Club Tavern!  (Thanks Moose!)

Butter, Plain or Salted popcorn: Extra Butter and Salt, DUH!!

Favorite TV show: If I had to pick one I'd have to say "The Office".

Dogs or cats?: I love em both, but I am a Dog person.
