What a great website for us radio fanatics! I grew up in radio as my father Jim Senich worked at WWCO & WATR primarily through my childhood years. I would hang out with him on Saturday mornings while he was on the air. I started listening to FM rock radio around 1988 when I turned on to Rock & Roll music. Being from Southington, I was tuning into stations my older brothers were listening to like WHCN, WPLR and WCCC. I remember hearing DJs like Lich, Pam Brooks, Mike Lapitino and The Wigmaster. In 1991 I was at Southern Connecticut State University in New Haven and a classmate of mine in Botany 101 (studying plantlife.....what a thrill) was a guy who said he worked at WPLR. His name was Ed Sabitino, aka "Eddie Sab"!!! Ed got me a spot on their amateur hour one Sunday night and I was off and running. I wanted nothing more than to be in a radio studio surrounded by rock & roll music. From there I interned at WPLR, joined my college station and would eventually land my first on-air spot as "Fletch" on WCCC in the fill of 1996. I did overnight weekends and soon after Saturday and Sunday afternoons. I was paid $5 an hour but it was the greatest job in the world! I later got a production/on-air job at WZMX in 1999 when they were "Classic Hits 93.7" and later "93-7 The Point". After that it was off to Danbury to work at WRKI (i95 FM), where I did nights for six years. I'm now working for the state full time and doing a Saturday mid-day shift for i95. I love coming walking in that studio as much as I did the first day I turned on the mic as the "Amateur Hour" DJ on WPLR in the summer of 1991!!!

My favorite show as a kid growing up in New Britain/Newington was that of Dr. Albert E. Burke of Yale U sponsored by Hartford National Bank and Trust. From Ch. 3 he went national. He actually introduced educational TV and further info on him is at www.dralberteburke.com

I worked at WBIS in Bristol, doing Sundays sign-on to sign-off. It was the job no one else wanted. As a high school kid in 1970, I was glad to be paid $2.50 an hour, thanks to Tom Ford who hired me. CE Lee Steele was a great guy, too!
