Middays: 10:00 - 3:00

30 Years in Retrospect

Well. That was quick. It doesn’t seem like 30 years have passed since I first opened the mic @ the Mighty 96.5 WCMF. Didn’t think I’d be here this long. Didn’t have any compelling reasons to leave.  I had always envisioned myself getting back to do radio in New York City @ WNEW-FM, which was the radio station I listened to in my musical “formative years.”  That station was musically intense, had great air personalities, and played a lot of music that was decidedly outside the mainstream.  That would explain why, until I came to Rochester, I had never heard of or listened to bands like Rush, Styx, REO, and AC/DC.  I never made much of an effort to get back to New York because things continued to go well for me here. Plus, having already had the experience of living in New York, I had the benefit to be able to compare and I preferred the smaller-city life of Rochester. I have never regretted that decision.

For the record: In my 30 years, I have worked for 5 owners, 10 general managers, 8 Program Directors, and broadcast from 5 different locations. And of course, I’ve had the pleasure of working with many talented & creative individuals both on and off the air. With the exception of a brief, 6 month shift of 6-10pm, it’s always been Middays. 10am-2pm, 10am-3pm, 11am-3pm, 11am-4pm, 12noon-4pm. It’s always been Middays, spending many a work day laying out the soundtrack for your work day. It has been a tremendous pleasure to be your Work Force Supervisor for lo, these many years. Thank you. More to come…

I moved back to Rochester almost six years ago and anytime I can catch your show, I know it's going to be a good afternoon... normally just weekends and days off. Always love your commentary and routines.
