Born in Chicago, Wolf didn't speak any English until he was age five and a half. Having learned all his English from good teachers, language became his forte and his passion. Although he grew up bilingually, with German as his first and subsequently his second language, he never mixed the two, as many immigrants do. Thus, he considered himself extremely fortunate to be sent to Germany as his first permanent duty station in the Air Force.
There, he met and married Anke, his wife of 40 years, served as a signals-intelligence officer, and acted as the group interpreter for a unit of approximately 1,000 men and women. Later assignments included stints as a special security officer, a year in Viet Nam, management analysis, and serving as a member of the Inspector General staff.
He also served as Chief of EEO at the Ohio River Division of the US Army Corps of Engineers, headquartered in Cincinnati, from which he retired. He was a charter member of the Cincinnati-Munich Sister City Committee and co-hosted a five-hour weekly German Radio Program with Heinz Probst on WOBO for five and a half years.
Wolf has always been "on" and loves talking with people, one-on-one, to an audience of thousands or on the air.
Currently he's the host of "Mid-morning Coffee With Wolf" on Tuesdays at 10 AM (EST/DST) on WMKV, 89.3 FM.
