Dorothy Zapata Announcer, Producer

KSQM Volunteer Since 2008


Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Dorothy moved to California in the late ‘60’s where she started her thirty year career at Lockheed-Martin.  After retiring, Dorothy and her husband, Izzy, moved to Sutter Creek, CA, where they built their dream retirement home. Four years of hot summers persuaded them to consider a move to Sequim, WA. Dorothy has found enjoyment in volunteering after retirement which brought her to KSQM Radio as an announcer. She created “Dorothy’s Doo-Wop Drive-In” and loves anything R&B, rock & roll and soul. Dorothy trains volunteers in announcing and recording. “Life is good, and we feel blessed to be able to enjoy our retirement in such a beautiful place.”
