I did two tours at WAAF. One 2-3 year stretch in the mid-90’s, and a couple more in the mid 2000’s.

Proudest Moment Of My Career!

Category: Boston - If it Rocks...It's 107.3 WAAF! | No comments

So…I’ve been doing radio for going on 28 years. And for the most part, it’s been a goof. I’ve seen every band I’ve ever wanted to see. I’ve had a chance to interview most of ‘em. And it’s been a blast.

However…once I had a chance to take part in something special. I mean truly special. I mean a once-in-a-lifetime moment that made a real difference. This is that moment…caught on tape. It was 2005 and I had the chance to thank a soldier. Not just any soldier. But, a local boy from the South Shore of Boston. His name is Sgt. Peter Damon. You may recognize him from the shameless, exploitation of his situation by scumbag-director Michael Moore. If you “google” him, you’ll read his true story.  It suffices to say…the man deserves more than we could ever give. I am more proud of this day, than any I have ever spent.

We were asked by the amazing organization Homes For Our Troops to take part in the very first project of its kind in America.

What you are about to listen to…is just a sample of that day. It is a long file (about an hour)…but IMHO…well worth the listen. Not for my glory. This day wasn’t about me.  I am so glad to have this audio. When I was editing it, it brought back emotions that move me just as much today as they did almost 6 years ago.

Sgt. Damon has gone on to do incredible things.  He is the epitome of an American hero. And I thank him for allowing me the honor of serving his family…if only for one day. Please give this a listen. I think you’ll be touched.

Lars Ulrich in Philly

I think this is at least the 3rd…maybe 4th different Lars Ulrich interview on this site. This time, it’s the night of Game 7 of the ALCS between the Red Sox & Yankees in 2004. All day we were screwing around with the Metallica guys, and it was Lars’ turn. Lars…can hang. And just obliterates Dave Mustaine. We also found out that the cheese steak I stole was actually Lars’

The Ozzy Osbourne Files

Category: Boston - If it Rocks...It's 107.3 WAAF! | No comments

Pre-Ozzfest Ozzy checks in to plug the Box Set. This was during a time when Ozzy was off the wagon. He was calling a bunch of stations randomly. To talk about Ozzfest so that he didn’t have to deal with Sharon’s cancer and his family issues at the time. He hid behind work to mask his issues.

Ozzy II: What are we talking about?

Ozzy in one of his other  appearances. During this one, we discuss the infamous Iron Maiden incident. And Ozzy has had issues keeping Brother Zakk around for years. This new breakup shouldn’t surprise anyone. And Ozzy has a mancrush on Lemmy!

Kirk Hammett Stops By

Category: Boston - If it Rocks...It's 107.3 WAAF! | No comments

Same Metallica show in Philly. We spent the whole day in a room with about a dozen other stations. It was like a “radio row” type thing. Apparently, Metallica did this to help push tickets sales in other cities. I guess it worked. This time I hang with Kirk. Found out he’ll occasionally shred in front of contest winners just to assert dominance. that’s just funny.
