My misspent youth

This is what I was doing 26 years ago this month…

Where this recording came from, I have no idea. My old friend — and I am officially of an age to have old friends — Gene Stern, who I worked with at KZ-93 in Peoria, Illinois before I took the job at WTRK in Philly, somehow stumbled onto this video and forwarded the link.

My old aircheck tapes went into the trash some years ago. Obviously, somebody in the Philadelphia metro was listening back then — although they apparently never got their hands on an Arbitron diary.

It’s just as well; I might still be in that business if things had gone well at WTRK (and later, WEGX), and the steel business has treated me and my family far better than broadcasting ever did.
