My career in broadcasting started soon after I graduated from North Catholic High School in Philadelphia. My first job was at WDVL FM 92.1, now WVLT 92.1 in Vineland, NJ. My stay at DVL was short lived as I managed to land a job at WIFI FM 92 in Philadelphia.
In March of 1975 I received a call from Jay Cook, who was the program director at WFIL AM Famous 56 asking me if I would be interested in the Prize Patrol / Captain Cash on air position. I immediately accepted the job and for the next two years worked with some of the best talent this industry has ever seen.
One of the biggest influences in my career was that of WFIL'S morning jock, Jim O'Brian. His professionalism and caring personality helped make 15 hour days seem short. I will always be grateful for his kind generosity and guidance.
In April of 1976 I started a swing shift at WAEB AM in Allentown, Pa. and then in early 1977 I worked at WKBO AM in Harrisburg.
It was in 1978 that I returned to Philadelphia to WYSP FM but this time I accepted a job in their sales department and doing part time air work and voice over’s. It was at WYSP that I created the "Classic Rock" format. (see wysp wikipedia)
I remained in mangament for the next serveral years after moving on to WWDB FM & WHAT AM in Philadelphia.
