Playing Dance, Disco and R&B Hits
from the 70s and 80s 7PM to
12AM Every Saturday Night!
I'm a local guy, from Hagerstown, MD. I started in radio in 1977 at WQCM in Hagerstown, when top 40 on FM was a new thing. From there I did some part time on air work in 1978 at the old Disco 93, WKYS.
In the early 80s I worked at WZYQ, Z-104 in Frederick, MD. (A station from which I have been fired 3 times!) I also worked part time at WBSB, Baltimore, B-104 . In 1985, I took the plunge and decided to try moving to another area to further my radio career. I was midday DJ and music director at WNVZ, Z-104 in Norfolk/Virginia Beach, VA. . But I was homesick for Maryland, so in 1986 I took the Program Director/Morning Show at WQCM.
In 1987, I went back to Baltimore to do Mornings at WWMX, Mix106 . Then I finally made it back to DC in 1990 working for the New Mix 107.3, WRQX. I did just about every shift there filling in from Mornings to weekends. I stayed at Mix until 1995, when I took the afternoon shift at a new radio station in town, The New Bright 99-5! (Anyone remember that?) Soon, Bright 99-5 went back to it's old call letters, WGAY, and became Relaxing Favorites from Yesterday and Today.
In 1998, I had a short stint at WASH, then moved to Florida and Texas, before getting homesick again and returning to the area in June 2001. Since then I've been doing part time work at both WASH and Big 100.3.
In 2008, I'm ecstatic to be playing the jammin dance hits of the 70s and 80s on WASH FM!
I ask for your support, please listen and tell all your friends to listen, so I don't have to move again!

Audience anxiety in the wake of the Aurora massacre came to a head at a West Homestead, Pennsylvania movie theater where a crowd watching "The Dark Knight Rises" Sunday night made a panicked dash for the emergency exits when a fight broke out in the theater. An
emergency dispatch supervisor said a 911 call came from the theater around 6:15
p.m. One witness said he doubted moviegoers would have reacted the same way if
news of the Colorado shooting wasn't so fresh in their minds. Homestead police
Chief Jeffrey DeSimone, whose officers were called in to provide crowd control,
said it's possible that moviegoers were extra jumpy because of the Colorado
attack, but the reality is that tragedies can strike anywhere. Talking about the
incident, movie-goer Dionne Okafor said, "After what happened, it makes it a
little more frightening. It's always in the back of your mind." (Pittsburgh
Oh Planet of the Apes Will Happen! It's Just a Matter of
Scientists from Lund University's Primate Research Station in
Sweden announced that they had evidence that chimpanzees are able to delay using
weapons they encounter, hide them and retrieve them later for use against
"foes," thus confirming the inevitable takeover of our world which will one day
become the planet of the apes! In this case, the weapons were stones and chunks
of concrete the apes had collected, and the foes were visitors to the zoo who
annoyed the chimps. According to the researchers, the 33-year-old chimp Santino
took pains to hide the weapons in locations where they could be accessed easily
for the element of surprise against the visitors. In the movie, his name was
Caesar! Better start brushing up on your best, "Get your hands off him you damn
dirty ape!" (Live Science)
