Radio: The Greatest Job In The World

Photo by Doug Mosher

To the people of my generation radio was a very significant part of our world; it’s where we heard some of the best music of our lives for the first time, radio was with us when we experienced our first loves, when we shared special memories, when we sang with our children to one of our favorite songs.

We had our favorite radio personalities, people we woke up to each day. Whenever it snowed, we hung on their every word to see if we had school.

When radio was presence in the community it was an event and we would ask our parents to take us to them so we could actually meet them and maybe win a cool prize like a t shirt or a record.

Radio is still one of the biggest media vessels in the world and I am so blessed to have been a part of it for almost 30 years.

When I broke into radio I never envisioned the relationship I would have with the people in our neighborhood and the power of the airwaves to not only play the best music, but also bring vital organizations and community together.

WAAL introduced us to Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Queen, Van Halen and more! The Whale played deep cuts from the Artists that defined Classic Rock, while defying the rules of top 40 radio!

I remember riding around in my buddies VW van and hearing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody for the very first time on 99.1 The WAAL.

Today I am behind the microphone as host of the Whale morning show,
Karma, Fate, Serendipity, Yatzee?

I say Life Rocks! (and I get to play the tunes)
