I had drinks with some old radio friends: Chris Thompson who continues to work at WOR Radio, is a womderful guy who made my time at WOR bareable. We worked closely together on the Food Talk program before he got kicked upstairs and I took his producing gig. Loads of fun.
Becky Bennett who now works for Buckley Broadcasting…the parent company of WOR, and is basically a personal assistant to the head honchos. Becky’s just a fun person to be around–a real kick in the pants. She simply tells it like it is. I hope soon she makes some guy an incredibly happy man.
Heather Cohen was my beautiful and talented co-producer and cubemate. She now is the bigwig at a new radio network for women called Greenstone Media. What a lovely woman she has always been and it’s good to see that she hasn’t changed one bit–with the exception of her being very skinny now (flattery will get you everywhere). Her hubby, Michael, is a lucky man indeed.
Paul Cavalconte is now hosting a jazz show on Sirius Satellite Radio–so I hope to see him around the shop. Nice guy, quirky, but funny. And is always thinking of others and tries to be helpful.
Larry Fonseca is someone who I never worked with but was the sports director at WFUV a few years before I took that same job at Fordham. We’ve been shadowing each other as he worked at both WFAN and WOR not long after I was at both places. I expect him to work at either Sirius or here with the Paulists at some point in the near future if tradition continues to follow form.
In all, a great night out with the old friends.
