​About Donna Jo "DJ" Thornton
Every weekend from 1999 to 2023, Donna Jo was the host of The Morning Breeze radio program and so much more. That's right, DJ the DJ!

During her nearly 25 years on the air, DJ hosted the The Morning Breeze radio program, and guest hosted on other programs on KSBR. She also organized and hosted The Morning Breeze Cruises in partnership with The Ocean Institute in Dana Point, taking listeners young and old out on dolphin- and whale-watching cruises, while Morning Breeze artists went along for the ride, often performing out on the open seas, attracting dolphins, whales, and other sea creatures with their music.
Along with the cruises, DJ organized the Morning Breeze Schmoozes - annual fund-raising concerts to benefit KSBR and the Ocean Institute. 

Sadly, we lost Donna Jo in April, 2023, after a long battle with breast cancer. Her spirit lives on and her mission and vision continue to bring "music that inspires" to a global audience. ❤

We had a celebration of life event in July, 2023 with a great turnout and wonderful performances by artists you hear on The Morning Breeze.
Click here to see a gallery of photos from the event. Thank you to everyone who attended and helped put it all together.

And, a huge thank you to the artists who performed at the event:


There was also a memorial broadcast with great music and kind messages from artists around the world. You can access recordings of that 16 hour broadcast in the MB Archives on Mixcloud:
