Reflecting On Tim Sheehan’s 30 Year Career on the Mighty Home of Rock & Roll, I-95
After 30 years at I-95, Tim Sheehan said his good-byes saying he was ready for a new adventure.
It was 3 pm on Thursday, June 18, 2020, when I-95's Tim Sheehan turned on his microphone for the last time to say goodbye to his afternoon classic rock audience. He told me it was time for a new challenge and a new adventure. He graciously thanked his listeners for their support over the last 30 years and handed over the reins as I-95's Afternoon Rock Jock to I-95's Production Director and former part-time air personality, Large Dave. I've pulled out the I-95 Scrapbook for your viewing pleasure.
This photo was taken in the mid-'80s during our first I-95 Beach Party at the Danbury Hilton, which is now the Crowne Plaza off I-84. Tim is on the far left looking like he's maybe 14. From left to right - Tim, Promotions Director, Jeff Blumin, Mike Dailey, and what was I thinking with that shirt?
Welcome to the I-95 blimp days, which our promotions department hated, especially on windy days. Can you spot Tim in the front row? In the front row from left to right - engineer, Pat Carlone, Promotions Director, Christa Saracco, Tim, Lou Rizzo, Joan Dylan, and AE, Cathy Moore.
Left to right - Tim, Promotions Director, Sal Cirrincione, and John Perry...
Playing the 'Friday Song' live on the Ives Concert Park stage. See if you can pick out Matt Carey, Finster, and Pam Brooks. That's Lou peeking over my shoulder.

All sorts of strange characters in this Christmas themed photo. Tim, looking like he's 10, is the dude with his mouth opened in the second row from the top. Who else do you recognize? Yes, that's me wearing one of my Bill Cosby sweaters.
A sad #tbt as we lost Mike Rappaport to cancer this week. A genuinely great guy from a magical time at I-95. This is from a toy drive circa 1992-93. Rock on, Rapp... you will be missed. Thanks, Christa Saracco, for the pic.
I have absolutely no clue who this band was, but Tim and Christa seemed very happy about the photo op.
Here's a shot snapped at my 25th Anniversary Bash at the Ridgefield Playhouse in 2004 with Tim, the late Jim Clarke, and John Perry.
You know these two minstrels, The Traveling Danbury's!
These six hot men from left to right are Bill Baker, Tim Sheehan, Joe Echeverria, Ethan Carey, Lou Milano, and Large Dave.
Where will Tim's next adventure take him? Will he become the next Springsteen or perhaps the owner of a new craft brewery? I hear the Red Sox may be on the lookout for a new talent scout, or will he move up to Maine, one of his favorite vacation spots, and call it home. Whatever you decide, my friend, all of us here at I-95, wish you the very best. It's been my pleasure to work along beside you for the last 30 years!
