Although I began my radio career in 1976, I had to work at three radio stations before I was able to get a job in my home town
My first station was in Utica, then Albany, and then Burlington Vermont.
I came to WHUC AM & FM in 1978. November 5th to be exact, doing the 2 to 7pm time slot.
I've come and gone a couple of times, returning for good in 1995. Radio has sure changed a lot on my end over the past 40 years, but I've seemed to survived the changes, and I'm glad to still be informing and serving the public many years later.
For those of you that are curious I was at
WDOT-Burlington VT 1978
WHUC FM (call letters changed to WRVW) 1982-88
WCKL/WQKZ (later to become The Cat) 1990-93
Then back to Hudson/Catskill On WHUC/WCKL, The Cat, & Oldies 93.5

and a LOT older, a couple of years ago
