On weekends, the music comes out to play and so do I. I have the best job in the world, playing Jersey’s Favorite Hits, and I’ve been doing it for more than 20 years here on New Jersey 101.5. You can catch me on Friday nights from 7 p.m. to midnight as well as Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. We have jokes, traffic, weather and great music. One of the great things I love to do is remote broadcasts and appearances. We go all over New Jersey for more fun and I get to meet the people that enjoy the show and our fine station. I live true to my motto: “Livin’ Large and Lovin’ Life.” Who has more fun than me?
