Dale Maxwell’s early roots are in North Fork, Idaho “which is not quite the end of the world but you can see it from there,” he quips before adding, “I love my hometown.”
He attended Salmon High School. In his Freshman year, he helped build a radio station for the school after helping with the FCC paperwork. “I helped build the transmitter, the booth, the whole nine yards and in my Senior year we were on the air. My last semester, I was in the radio booth probably three of the five classes a day.”
Next stop? Broadcast Tech, where he graduated at the top of his class. But then he discovered that “the broadcasting industry was upside down and it really wasn’t my shtick.” He then held a long list of random jobs.
