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!
