Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
It’s time to say goodbye to not only another year, but what has been perhaps the most rewarding professional experience of my life. It has truly been a privilege to play even a small role in the creation and growth of what has become a thriving and successful broadcasting operation. Safe to say 17 years on we have put to rest the mantra surrounding us at the start, “Nobody will pay for radio, you guys are crazy!”
The Loft will continue under the guidance of Chris Muckley, leaving me secure in the knowledge that my baby will continue to grow up in good hands and ears. Speaking of which, while The Loft may have been “my baby” it would have never reached even this level without the enormous contributions of Franny Thomas, Meg Griffin, David Johansen and Larry Kirwan. They will thankfully all continue to weave their radio magic unfettered.
My plans include spending more time with family and friends, getting my health together and rooting for my beloved New York Yankees. My final batch of Wake Up Sets will take place Friday 12/29 starting at 6 AM (ET) and my last Loft Show will be Saturday 12/30 from Noon to 6 PM (ET).
Please accept my sincere gratitude for letting me into your lives for these last 17 years and listening so damn close. I will miss you all.
P.S. Have an absolutely beautiful rest of your life.
I will still be here:
Many have asked how to keep the From The Basement programs afloat, especially now that I am unemployed. Please donate via PayPal below whatever you feel you can afford to help cover my costs. Thank you.
