Welcome to, a Web site that celebrates the long and distinguished career of one of South Dakota’s pioneer radio and television sportscasters.

Danny O’s colorful sportscasting career is reminiscent of the "Field of Dreams" motion picture as he grew up on an IowaDanny Olson farm, loved sports – particularly the game of baseball – and went on to talk with some of the biggest names in major-league baseball history, including such legendary players as Ty Cobb and Hank Aaron.

In this site you will find a biography on our father, information on his career highlights, and a  photo scrapbook . You’ll also be able to review some of Danny’s favorite Web links.
