Town to town. Up and down the dial. Until I stopped at 95.1 FM…. My radio career began in 1991 at 530 AM WOWL, the college radio station of Southern Connecticut State University. While there I interned at 99.1 FM WPLR until eventually landing my first professional on-air gig in 1996 doing weekends at 106.9 FM WCCC in Hartford using the on-air name of "Fletch"! In 1998 I did weekends for 93.7 FM in Hartford under three different formats (Classic Hits 93.7, 93-7 The Point and Dancin’ Oldies 93.7). During that time I also did some fill-in sports and news updates for 1320 AM in Waterbury. I wound up getting the full-time weeknight gig right here at 95.1 FM from 2000-2006 before coming back to i95 in 2009 where I've been doing Saturday mid-days ever since. Along with the articles you can read here on i95's website I also write for the Van Halen News Desk at VHND.com.
