John Andres

Sunday morning host

John Andres is your genial host, Sunday mornings from 6 to 8 a.m. and often fills in on other day parts.  His love of classical music comes from his parents who took him to concerts at a young age.  John says that with a little practice he can still play five pieces on the piano. He can play many, many more on the radio.  John enjoys swimming, reading, history and current events.  You may see John out in the community where he loves meeting faithful listeners at WXXI events.

John also serves as the engineer for Connections with Evan Dawson on WXXI-AM, and fills in for various shifts on WXXI’s NPR News station.
