“Gateway To Dawn” on KAOS


Gateway To Dawn was a live weekly radio program on KAOS 89.3 in Olympia, WA. Known on air as Austin Dashwood, Matt hosted and produced the weekly 2-hour program. Gateway To Dawn aired each Wednesday from 11pm to 1 am. The first hour featured a mix of local music from a different featured area each week. The second hour showcased a variety of electronic music.

During its 2 year run, Gateway To Dawn featured 5 guest co-hosts and 5 live-musical guests. Matt live engineered for all of his musical guests while holding down his on-air DJ duties.

As Austin Dashwood, Matt frequently volunteered to fill-in host for his fellow DJ’s who were on leaves of absence. He hosted a variety of genre shows from folk to hip hop.

Gateway To Dawn came to an end in April of 2015 when Matt relocated to the east coast following his graduation from The Evergreen State College.

Matt hopes to someday bring Austin Dashwood back to the airwaves.
