Bill Raffel will host Saturday Rounds from 10 am to 1:30 pm each week. He is returning to WNED after serving as a part-time news reporter for WNED AM970 (and its predecessor WEBR) from 1992 to 1994.
More recently, Raffel hosted classical music on WBFO and produced the short interview segment Music Notes. He also produced The Celtic Kaleidoscope.
The University at Buffalo alumnus holds a doctorate in communication and a law degree. He is currently an associate professor of communication at Buffalo State College.
Raffel also is an eclectic musician who still plays the tin whistle and Celtic harp, and performs Celtic music with the Hobsonís Choice trio. He says he began listening to Classical 94.5 during his high school days at Kenmore West.
