I can’t believe you didn’t send me a Radio Day card.  How has Hallmark not cashed in on this important holiday?  Radio people love to tell their story… even if no one wants to hear it.  I have no problem with you skipping this episode.  I can’t see why you’d want to listen to me ramble for an hour about my radio stories.  But for some reason we radio people love to gush about that first job, the first time being fired, when we decided this was what we wanted to do, etc.  It’s so self-serving and interesting probably only to the person telling the story.

That said, here’s my long winded account of the first time I walked into a college radio studio in Bangor, Maine and within the first hour illegally going on the air at WHSN, interning and then getting my first job at my hometown top 40 station WTHT (FM 103 and later Thunder 107), playing awful Michael Bolton songs at 4am while in college at WXLO in Worcester, Massachusetts, making my first move to Florida looking for beaches in Tallhassee while on the air at Hot 104.9, leaving to find gold in Caliornia at KHOP, and when I found neither beaches or gold, hanging up the headphones and coming home to New England to work for my all-time favorite radio station WBCN in Boston. And then finally, with a better knowledge of where to live in Florida, making the move south one last time to work for WQYK and Q105.
