The 2012 Oldies Radio Meet and Greet was the Best

I must say that the 7th Annual Meet and Greet of Oldies Radio enthusiasts had to be the best.  About 60 people came to share their enthusiasm for the “soundtrack of our lives.”  I took that expression from Soundtrack of the 60s that was heard on WYNY from 1981-84.  There were several  radio personalities including:

  • Carol Miller 
  • Jim Kerr
  • Cool Bobby B
  • Bob Radil
  • Rich Appel
  • Don Tandler
  • Alan Seltzer

The two highlights of the day:

Louise Murray, formerly of the Jaynettes, singing her version of My Guy which recorded by Mary Wells.

Pete Ritzert singing the Kinks hit Sunny Afternoon.

The most important thing was to get together with people who share a passion for oldies radio.  You really don’t “know a person” through Facebook or message.  You must meet and greet them face to face.  It was also nice to keep our mind off the terrible aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
