"I came to finish paying my bill"


*Radio Free Boston - The Rise and Fall of WBCN is the new book about the late-great legendary station in Boston where I got my professional start. It was written by Carter Alan - author, musicologist, personality-plus, one of my oldest radio brothers and a friend for over 35 years (ask him how we first met!).. Carter is currently the MD and mid-day host at WZLX in Boston. Find out more here and buy a copy today to help build a wing to his cottage. He even mentioned me!

** Maxanne Satori was the afternoon host on WBCN during my impressionable teen years. I became her in-studio intern on the 50th floor of the Prudential Building in 1975 and she,  by doing what she did so well, convinced me that I was going to make radio my career. I cannot begin to tell you how many bands she turned me (and all of New England) on to - I had a mad crush on her as did most musicians and listeners that were lucky enough to know or listen to her. 38 years later - she is still my rock 'n' roll queen. I love you, Max!

Thanks Bill.

 *** Charles Laquidara was a pioneer WBCN personality. I grew up listening to him as the morning host of The Big Mattress and eventually became his radio-brother, friend and regular replacement-host when he took one of his astounding number of days off. Someone had to do the "Dirty Work". He (and Duane Ingalls Glasscock) helped make Boston the #1 radio city in America - until I left to work at the legendary KOME in San Jose/San Francisco. But that's another story for a different day! Chuck, you made a huge difference in many lives - especially mine!
