Don McIver


Basic Human Needs Award winning poet, Don McIver a host/producer of KUNM’s Afternoon Freeform every other Friday, the author of The Noisy Pen and The Blank Page, and an editor of A Bigger Boat: The Unlikely Success of the AlbuquerquePoetry Slam Scene. As a DJ, he has a deep appreciation for Spoken Word as a genre (hosted KUNM’s Spoken Word Hour for several years before moving to Freeform), yet feels the job of a Freeform DJ is to be well versed in all genres. He says, “An ideal Freeform DJ is someone whose taste is very wide across all genres but only deep in a small number of them.” He's a teacher by trade at Central New Mexico Community College, where he also manages the tutoring center.
