Superbowl Sunday and Justin Timberlake told to Keep Things Clean

Everyone's getting excited over the big game on Sunday. Many people watch just to see the commercials and entertainment. This year Justin Timberlake will be headlining the half time show. Officials at the Parents Television Council have written an open letter to Justin Timberlake urging him to keep Sunday's (04Feb18) Super Bowl Half-Time show clean for family viewers. As most of us remember, Justin was part of the 2004 fiasco where he ripped open headliner Janet Jackson’s top to expose a bare breast and TV watchdog groups don't want a repeat of that - or anything like it. So enjoy the Superbowl and the half time show!

WPSC ALUMNI WEEKEND

About 46 years ago I walked into Hobart Hall at William Paterson University. I was anxious because my goal was to get onto the college radio station WPSC which at that time was a carrier current station that only covered the campus and dorms. As soon as I walked in that door, and up those stairs, I knew that my life would change! I auditioned (and was awful) but was given a show and met some of the best people of my life! I then worked for over 25 years in radio and now run this station Edgewater Gold Radio. All thanks to the people and experience that I got at my first gig WPSC AM 590. Today WPSC is a premier FM college station serving northern New Jersey on 88.7FM and the world on the int

Don Imus Retiring

Don Imus announced that he will be retiring from his syndicated radio show on March 29. Imus now 77 years old said on his radio show that the bankruptcy of Cumulus Media which syndicates Imus in the Morning had required a change of plans. Imus came to New York in 1971 where he worked at WNBC. I had the opportunity of driving "Mr. Imus" to his car when he visited our college radio station WPSC back in 1973. I had a clunkity old 1966 Chevy Impala. Imus was parked in one of the distant parking lots across campus. He got in my car and the car stalled for the entire trip across campus. Imus remarked " you should get rid of this piece of shit." I guess that should be considered a compliment by the

What's Your Favorite Decade for Music?

Sometimes, I'm asked what's my favorite decade for music. Being a baby boomer, I quickly answer the 1960's. If asked what decade brings back the most memories, I must add the 1970's as well. In the 1960's, the music was very diverse. You had the early girl groups, crooners like Sinatra, Bobby Darin and Steve Lawrence on the charts with the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. It was the decade for the British Invasion, flower power, protest songs, folk songs along with some novelty tunes. In the 1960's, I became very interested in radio. I loved listening to the pop stations playing music that I loved and hearing voices that made me believe that the world was a good place and fun place. Th
