Michael Leahy

“Asking a radio DJ to do a top-five list is cruel!” exclaimed Michael Leahy, host of KDVS’ Cool as Folk, where he spins folk, Americana, bluegrass and other acoustic music. Nonetheless, Leahy was able to come up with a Playlist, adding: “I will just go with my top five right now in my hurried, crowded, lovesick mind.”
