Have been loving radio since I jumped in with both feet at my college radio station, WCCB, Clarion's Hot Rock. It no longer exists, but there are still CCB'rs working at radio stations across the entire country. Was lucky enough to learn from Charlie Quinn and Jay Beau Jones at WHTT in Boston, working for them in programming.
From there, it was off to WINK 104 in Harrisburg, PA for 10 great and fun years. It was weekends, then overnights, then nights and then 8 years as Music Director/Midday DJ. Got to play the greatest music out there and was lucky enough to see and meet many of my favorite bands and artists, ever.
For the next 15 years (or so), I had a blast working with Jed Donahue as co-host/producer, rambling on about one of my other loves in life: Sports, w/plenty TV and Movie Stuff mixed in. There were a couple of detours along the way. I worked on some independent films in Hollywood in the middle of the last decade. Managed to get some crew credits on IMDB.
Woo Hoo! I also had a fun couple of years working for the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum. When the Isles announced their move to Brooklyn, I planned my trip back to Hollywood, but this time the plan was to get the Retro Blast off the ground and on a radio station near year you.
Three Marconi Awards during my 10 years at WINK 104 in Harrisburg, PA Music Director and Midday DJ. Twice for top CHR radio station in the country and once for top radio station in the US.

The talent that I sat with that day was incredible, I was in total awe and I can tell you that it was a moment of pure magic,” says Chuck.

The 90's Flashback celebrates everything 90's
Return to the decade when Seinfeld, Friends, ER, The Drew Carey Show, and the X-Files were big on television. Jim Carrey, Adam, Sandler, and Chris Farley were box office magic. It was when Tom Hanks taught us life was like a box of chocolates in Forrest Gump, Dinasaurs lived in Jurassic Park, and the Titanic set box office records.
It was the decade Grunge music led to grunge fashions with flannel shirts and Doc Martens, Hip-Hop was becoming increasingly more popular and kids couldn't get enough of beanie babies, tickle me elmo, and tamagatchi.
Tuesdays: 3pm - 4:45pm (GMT)
