Malachy Koons

Music Through the Day Host

I grew up in Viroqua, WI and moved to Duluth in 2014 to attend UMD. I majored in Geography and started volunteering at KUMD as a Basement DJ, and now work at KUMD part time as a Music Through The Day host and music reviewer. I also host the Local and the Lounge on Wednesdays. 

 In my spare time I love going to shows, collecting records, and enjoying all the beautiful nature our area has to offer.

During the month of February, Trampled by Turtles has been streaming shows every Thursday, recorded at First Avenue and with a different setlist each week. Malachy, co-host of The Local on KUMD, had a chance to talk with Erik Berry of the band about the shows and how he and the rest of the band have been adapting to the pandemic.
