ss12-WEB-dick-kowal-150Dick Kowal is the Music Director and recording engineer at WCQS in Asheville. As a trumpet player, Dick spent two summers as a student at the Brevard Music Center during his teenage years. He later majored in music in college and played in a variety of ensembles until his obligations at the station became too demanding; although, he still manages the occasional gig. An avid music appreciator, Dick especially enjoys listening to the musicians he records for WCQS, including everything from old-time and bluegrass jams to Asheville Symphony concerts. Outside of music and radio, Dick has a affinity for old, expensive to maintain sports cars.
