I was honored to not only be involved with the event (at the request of my dear friend Bill Mozer), in attendance with people who I have been listening to for as long as I can remember, but to have been included in this article...thanks Jim!

We have already started planning Long Island Radio & TV Day 2010. If you are interested in getting involved feel free to contact me at [email protected]

It would be remiss not to mention WLIR. They were to Nassau listeners what WBAB was to Suffolk listeners. Even though they were a Connecticut station, I enjoyed listening to WPLR from New Haven. Not so much the DJ's, but the playlists were great...

WLIR was really cool too. Remember Jim Cameron..Joel Moss and Joe Bonnadonna? The Ticket Pool and Screamer Of The Week? WPLR's disc jockeys were good too. Remember "Stoneman" A Legend.
Jay Crawford..Gordon Weingarth? Kathy Cunningham was one of the first ladies (if not the first)on both stations I recall..during the 70's.

I used to listen to Kath on KJOY and called her KathyKjoy because she WAS the radio station!

Kathy Cunningham was the best thing that ever happened to KJOY! She was a JOY to listen to... funny, smart, always wanted to play what you wanted to hear. Why isn't she on the radio? I remember hearing her on WBAB and she even did something called Roxy Patrol for lost dogs. She helped so many people find their lost dogs. I'll never forget it!
