Hi there – yep, it was leaked on air this morning by The Happy Gang – it’s my birthday today – the 18th. I’m a fine “Sag.” – and I’m in great company with other Dec.18-ers – like Steven Spielberg, Brad Pitt and Keith Richards… and our music director – Brian Peroff. How unusual is that ? – the station’s program director and music director born the same day – I’m a year older ! I think we’re quite different, except we both love music.
We had our staff party yesterday at MZ Media – lots of fun as all the many employees from AM 740, Classical 96.3 FM, Zoomer Magazine, MZ-TV, the folks from our websites, and even the MZ TV Museum, got together with great deli foods, drinks, desserts, and live performance/singing by many.
I hope you’re enjoying our Christmas music – starting Saturday (tomorrow) we’ll be playing solid Christmas music right thru the 25th. Oh, by the way, here’s a tip – keep AM 740 on your radio as background music for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day – it’ll be commercial-free, thanks to a big sponsorship by CARP Auto and Home Insurance. We won’t play commercials, or any other interruptions – even our show hosts will be with their families – so, JUST the music.
In my next blog I’ll tell you all about our New Year’s Eve and N.Y. Day programming plans. We’ll be doing a lot of terrific things in 2010, and I really hope you will stay tuned in.
For now – my best wishes to you and your family for a very merry Christmas and lots of happiness, peace and good health for the new year. Gene
