Dana Robbins grew up in the small town of Millbury MA with musical influence from his father as he listened to him play the guitar at various family functions through the years. Dana began his career as an electronics technician before transitioning into sales and marketing. After entering the newspaper business in 1987 with the Middlesex News in Framingham, Robbins relocated to Florida in 1989 and worked for the Tampa Tribune while also putting his self-taught drumming skills to use in a blues band called Borderline. Robbins then married, and moved his wife and two kids back to good ol’ Millbury where he began his 20-year tenure at the Worcester Telegram & Gazette as a manager in the circulation department. In addition to previously co-hosting a jazz program on WICN a few years back, Dana has been part of a few different musical projects such as presiding over an online radio program, drummer for a local blues band and producer for an entertainment company. Please join Dana on Friday nights from 11pm – 2am as he returns to WICN to host JAZZ360.
