This April starts my sixth year at 105.7 The Hawk and in New Jersey Shore radio. Radio years equal dog years, so I've been here forever! The Jersey Shore has been "berry berry" good to me.

So, allow me a second of self-indulgence, and please allow me to push something very Jersey Shore to you. All of us love the Classic Rock format: the bands, performers, music, and lyrics all have stood the test of time. And, most of us have guilty pleasures and other music loves as well. My not secret obsession has always been the 1980's band The Smiths and the solo career of their singer Morrissey. I am such an obsessed fan that my son's middle name is actually Morrissey. I won't bore you with more details or lyrics on a 30-year obsession...

However, I do bring it up for a reason. A few months ago, fate came to me and I was given the opportunity to be a booking manager for a brand new Smiths-Morrissey tribute band based out of Philadelphia. Our debut gig will be at the Jersey Shore, at the world famous Stone Pony in Asbury Park! I hope to see all of you out there for an amazing evening.

Once again, the Jersey Shore has been berry, berry good!
