Ron Lundy, Harry Harrison Cousin Brucie- these were the most influential voices of my childhood. These men were the DJ’s of my era.

My fondest memories were those sunny days when mom said, “Pack up a pail and shovel, we’re goin’ to the beach. And don’t forget the transistor radio!”

The Sounds of Motown filled the salty air of the Rockaways. And the Beatles, Beach Boys, and all of those fabulous hits we now call classic oldies flew over the radio waves and floated above the surf. I can still hear the roar of the rollercoaster of Rockaway Playland.

Maybe I’m just getting old but they don’t make ’em like that anymore. – Fading Ad Campaign 1999
