Welcome to My Blog.¬† Management here is pretty big on this kinda thing.¬† We all gotta blog, so I'm blogging too.¬† Personally, I don't read blogs and I don't know that what I write will be of any interest to anyone, but I will try to make things here worth the minutes that you may spend here hoping to read or find out something interesting.¬† Of course, if you's have anything you want to know about, complain about, suggest or comment on, well, I'm all ears and will address your concerns.¬† Honestly.
A coupla things:¬† I have been here at the Mighty 96.5 WCMF for 28 years.¬†(not counting the 3 months of "imposed exile" from Dec. 07-March 08)¬† I cannot be any more proud of this radio station or feel any more privileged to have worked here for so long.¬† It is quite uncommon for an air talent ¬†to stay in one market for so many years.¬† It happens, but as a whole, radio has always been a very transient business by nature.¬† I was very fortunate early in my career to find¬†something I like to do in a place I like to do it.¬† I love living and working in Rochester N.Y.
I love this radio station.¬† If you cut me, I will bleed WCMF.¬† I remember listening to the radio station while in college (SUNY Brockport) and when I got a job at the Ames Department store out that way, I always had it on in the car stereo department.¬† I used to tell the guy I worked with that I was gonna get a job at 'CMF.¬† He told me he as gonna get a job at Kodak.¬† I don't know if he ever did but I got the job I wanted and I'm still here.¬† And WCMF is still here.¬† After 40 years.¬† In one format!¬† We have always been Rock & Roll in one form or another.¬† I guess we know how to do it after all this time.¬† We have also dispensed with a number of challengers and wanna-be's.¬† I'll tell you this right now:¬† we have always and will always be committed to providing Rochester with the best possible Rock & Roll music, personalities (all "Live", btw), features, giveaways, etc.¬† We actually give a shit about you.¬† WCMF doesn't "import" talent from other markets.¬† Everyone on the air at WCMF lives here.¬† This radio station is part of the fabric of Rochester.¬† We span generations.¬† Your parents probably listened to us.¬† (that is, if your in your teens or 20's or 30's) ¬†I (We) sincerely hope that you will continue to recognize WCMF as Rochester's Premiere Rock & Roll Radio Station.
I hope you will listen to the radio station.¬† Lots!¬† I invite you to contact me with any questions, concerns, gripes, praise, whatever.
I will respond.¬†

Thanks for reading this.¬† More to come...
I cannot believe my eyes - you blogging! Speaking as one of those "management people who are pretty big on this kind of thing" - I think you'll soon learn that the WCMF listeners can't wait to communicate with you one on one via your blog. You're one cool cat with lots of Rock n Roll knowledge to convey...
I look forward to following your blog.
