Everyone has a person or persons that have a great influence on their future careers. Sometimes it's a newscaster, actor, parent, or expert from any field. For me there were several people in the radio industry that were my biggest influences. Today I will talk about the first individual who played a strong role in sparking my interest in radio.

Being in radio for about 30 plus years, I've worked on many stations, with many great people and Program Directors. Each station was profit driven of course so I had to conform to some strict programming rules. I was lucky enough to play the music that I love. Oldies, Soft Rock, Country, Adult Contemporary (Not the AC of today but of the 70s and 80s) and Popular Standards.

Radio was a big part of my life while growing up. We lived in the New York area at the time (North Jersey) My mom would have a radio sitting on top of the refrigerator.

The station is owned by Quinnipiac College but is run by professionals as well as students. The article mentions that the students have really no interest in radio anymore. This sparked a dialog on the New York Radio Sound Board. I did mention that it is really ashamed but the youth of today have too m
