Lou and I decided the time was right to tell the story of the mighty I-95 and the on-air personalities who contributed to the success of this legendary rock station.

We call the feature the "I-95 Alumni Series" and the two of us have been lining up former I-95 personalities to give them the opportunity to talk about their experiences at the station. So far we've talked with Omelette, Finster, Jay Coffey, and Jim McCarthy, fondly known as Fat Gilley.

Buzz Knight was already on the air as the I-95 afternoon drive jock when I came on board in February 1979. Soon after I arrived, Buzz became the Program Director and that's when the fun started.

Buzz turned out to be my mentor. I learned everything about the business of radio from this I-95 early '80s radio pioneer. Buzz eventually left I-95 to pursue new challenges as a programmer at WLVQ in Columbus, Ohio, WKQQ in Lexington, Kentucky, and the mighty WMMR in Philadelphia. He currently runs his own company, Buzz Knight Media, and produces his podcast titled, Takin a Walk.
