Tom Olsen came to Seattle from South Dakota at the age of 9, and was educated at Seattle University and the University of Washington. He first came to classical-music radio at the former KXA in Seattle, and five years later joined KING FM as an announcer. As former Music Director, Tom was responsible for choosing all the music played on the air. In his spare time he is an eager reader of history and new fiction. Tom is now enjoying retirement, but can still be heard on KING FM in the wee hours of the weekends.
