Way back in time, when I was a young boy starting out with a dream to see the music he and others loved get the exposure it deserved, I found a light and established my own platform in a 10 watt basement studio located to the left of the tennis courts at MIT!
I had wanted to attend that college to pursue a career in architecture but was not submitted due to grades or some other application requirements.
As I look back on it all now, that may have been the best thing in the world for me as I decided to graduate with a BS in Civil Engineering from Northeastern University changed my career path after just one year off work in the field as a practicing engineer and in the process breaking the record for putting up an 8 Story precast-prestressed concrete building in Westborough called Fountainhead!
That was 1974 when I left to spin records full time and use my passion to build my career. During that process I met not only Sonny Joe White but a great DJ named, Ron Robin, who I actually grew up loving on WMEX and was an avid fan of the dance scene and the people who comprised it.
That relationship with Ron ended up with he, I and Vinnie Peruzzi, all banding together to take a 50,000 watt FM that had no direction and turn it into the beacon of hope and dance music for all of New England.
Here from a post a few years old are some of the carts that I used for my show back in 1978 on WBOS-FM!
Much love to all the BOS alumnae of which there are many such at Fred Bement and that great city I call home, Boston, for keeping me focused and never allowing any of us to give less than our very best at all times!
