February 28, 1979 was my first evening on the air here at The Home of Rock N' Roll, I-95. Join me if you'd like, as I take a short trip back to the early 80's for some photos and fond memories.

When I moved to Connecticut to work at I-95, I left Mindy behind to rent our apartment back where we lived in Rochester, NY. I-95 management offered to put me up at the I-95 transmitter site while I looked for a place for Mindy and I to live. At the time, there was a small house on the site of I-95's 'Big Stick' where I lived, and I gotta tell ya', it was pretty damn gross in that building plus when I plugged in my radio, I-95 came booming out at me on every single frequency. When I unplugged the radio, it kept on crankin' out I-95! Freaky!

In the early 1980s, the I-95 Moose was born and the women LOVED that Moose especially the LARGE antlers.I was told that it had something to do with the I-95 Moose's 'package,' whatever that means. Here's a photo of the  Moose and myself when I used to be an avid runner and 60 pounds lighter complete with Bozo the Clown hair.

From 1986 until 1989, the incredibly talented Dale Reeves, also known as 'The Voiceman' ruled the I-95 airwaves in the morning. When Dale departed, I got the nod for mornings where I've remained to this very day and couldn't be happier. I've also worn through many morning show co-hosts who departed for various reasons. Check out this photo from L to R, Tim Sheehan, who looks like he's 12, Promotion Director, Jeff Blumin, and my first morning show partner, Mike Daily.

A couple of my fondest I-95 memories from the '80s were the wild I-95 Beach Parties held at the Danbury Hilton, which is now the Crowne Plaza. Actual beach sand was imported for that first beach party, which was sold out. I remember being told that there were lines of cars waiting to exit I-84 to get to the Hilton. Nice shirt E!
