My 3 favorite NYC Morning Radio Personalities of Today

Since I only have one set of ears, I can only listen to one radio station at a time. Let's start at the bottom and work our way up.
Dan Taylor has been the morning man at WCBS-FM since the station returned in July 2007. I just love his banter with Mr. G, the Weatherman. I met him a few weeks ago at the CBS Radio Expo at Yankee Stadium.
Claudia Marshall artistically reminds me of the late Allison Steele, the Night Bird. She always plays a good music mix when she is on the air on WFUV. I hear a fair amount of Bob Dylan when she is behind the mike. She is a Facebook friend.
Since my employer, NJIT, is located in Newark, I just had to check out WBGO whose studio and transmitter is located just a few blocks away. Gary Walker has been the morning man since I first checked out the jazz programming on the station. I must thank him again from playing Ben Sidran's Dylan Different. More on that later in the week.
When I am home in the morning, I listen to about 30 minutes of each show. When I go to work I listen to Dan, and then listen online to Claudia or Gary. I switch off each day. I can listen to online radio when I do online tasks like reading e-mail.
Back in 2007 I sent Dan Taylor a suggestion. Karen heard him read my suggestion while I was listening to WFUV.
Honorable Mention goes to Sue O'Neal who does weekend mornings at WCBS-FM.
Shortly, I will list my 3 favorite morning DJs of all time.
