Spotlight on Pete Fornatale

Pete Fornatale has to be one of my favorite radio personalities.  Please click on the link for more information.  Pete started his career as a Fordham student at WFUV but is most known for his time at WNEW-FM.  He also worked for a short time at WXRK when that station had a classic rock format.  From the mid 1980s to the Mid 1990s I listened to him every weekend when he hosted Saturday Morning Sixties and Mixed Bag on Sundays.  Some years ago he returned to WFUV where he now hosts Mixed Bag on Saturdays from 4 PM - 8 PM.  I am usually busy on Saturdays so I try to catch Pete whenever I can from 4 PM to 6 PM before Saturday Night Oldies.  Pete's shows are archived on WFUV's site.  I must say that Pete has an encyclopedic knowledge of the music that he plays.  Every 4 hour show is a theme set.  Pete has also authored several books.
