Don Shields: On-Air Talent 2-6 Monday-Friday 

When you listen from 2-6 in the afternoon on WPXN, you hear a voice many have grown up with either in school at PBL or on the air at WPXN. Many know him as "Coach" because he coached so many different sports, but others know his voice because he has been with WPXN since it's earliest beginnings. When he retired from teaching and moved to the Southwest Radio Ranch, technology allowed him to stay with Classic Hits radio. He loves talking(you guys know that) and he relishes in keeping things moving through the afternoon with tidbits about songs, strange things people do, and area happenings. Don has been married to Dorothy(who also taught at PBL) for 44 years. His kids (Joe Bradley and Debi) also live in the Grand Canyon State. When not on the air, he soaks up the sunshine, goes to the movies, and takes care of Dobermans, and gives speeches throughout Arizona in a one-man show as Governor Geroge W.P Hunt, the first Governor of Arizona. You can reach Don and give him tidbits like Birthdays, Anniversaries, and where you might be and why certain songs mean so much or just say "hi" by emailing him afternoon1049@gmail.com.
