When I was growing up in the world of music, I was so very fortunate because at that time there was NO TECHNOLOGY to replace TALENT and either you had it or did not - CASE CLOSED! What that meant for me was the there were no auto-tunes, not way of putting an out of time instrument in time and no way for songs to be sampled and used as the basis of your song, as you either wrote and performed a hit or you did not get airplay. So in effect, I was spoiled because I heard music
I would produce or mix a recording and provide an instrumental mix for the DJs in the clubs to allow them the latitude to change and alter the presentation for their crowds from night to night, however they wanted to for the evening!I took as much pride in my instrumentals as I did in the final vocal mixes and worked hard on them rebalancing the levels and adding in some new parts that may have been in conflict with the vocals on the final version.

WBOS was the first 50,000 Watt FM All Dance Station in Boston and indeed the country.We were way ahead of our time and had only a skeleton crew that worked day and night and I even took care of selling advertising. Talk about dedication, we had it.The interviews and radio shifts were split amongst three people, myself, Ron Robin and Vinny Peruzzi.
