violin & ship-to-shore radio

David Levesque was born at early age in Clearwater, Florida because he wanted to be close to his mother. When he was 10 years old, his parents gave him a violin (they told him it was a poodle), and he was soon earning a living by his skill, as his neighbors paid him not to practice.

At the age of 15, he won his first major prize, though unfortunately it wasn’t for making music. He discovered, in 1983, that Oregon was the greatest place to live on Earth, though he spends most of his time these days at sea, entertaining on cruise ships in exotic ports of the world as a comedy violinist. During those rare days that he finds himself back in the Pacific Northwest, he happily wanders Laurelhurst Park wearing flannel pajamas, dictating novels in languages he does not speak and composing operas no one in their right mind would ever perform.

His lifelong ambition is to be professor of history at an accredited women’s college in the Columbia Gorge and to see his name in print anywhere besides the Police Blotter.

No cats were harmed during the stringing of his instrument.
