Dan Donovan (Blaine Harvey) aka “The Geezer” Dies

April 9, 2020

Dan Donovan passed away over Labor Day weekend. I grew up listening to Dan in the Twin Cities: first on KS95 (KSTP-FM 94.5) and then on KOOL 108 (KQQL-FM 107.9.) He was one of the best. Known as “The Geezer” or simply “The Geez” during his tenure on KOOL, Dan always performed a very energetic afternoon show. He was definitely an “old school” jock with tons of personality. As a kid who aspired to be on the radio when I grew up, Dan was one of my influences. I rarely missed “the Donovan Disaster.”

Prior to his arrival in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Dan worked at legendary AM Top 40 outlets WMEX-AM 1510 in Boston and WFIL-AM 560 in Philadelphia. He will be missed.
