Diane has been married to Don for over 26 years. Took a while but she found her soul mate and they love riding Harley’s

Diane’s husband Don is retiring from his job next Friday July 26th & he’s so ready to punch that time clock for the last time! She says they will be riding in the wind with KSHE blasting the tunes as they head on down the highways and byways

Diane’s son, Butch McMaster, grew up on her rock n’ roll & taught himself how to play guitar & double-bass drums. She says he was one of the best drummers anyone had ever heard and was in local band Cottonmouth. They lost him in an accident in 2001

Diane was one of the finalist in the Harley Davidson giveaway at Quincy’s Hawg Pit Barbeque Barn in Grafton on August 12th, 2014. She didn’t win but says it was so much fun

Diane was at the very last ‘Party Town’ at Union Station before the big move and she’ll never forget Don getting the phone call bumping them up to 2nd row seats to Roger Waters
