Good Luck Don Tandler

Yours truly with Don Tandler at the Long Island
Radio Day at C.W. Post in April 2010

Don Tandler, in a Facebook post, announced that his duties at NJ105 were reduced on account of financial issues at that station.  He will no longer be doing steady overnight work at the station.  There are few radio personalities like Cousin Bruce Morrow and Howard Stern who can command big salaries.  We rarely think of the people in small markets who don’t make the big bucks.  We also take for granted people like nurses and police who must work overnight.  Don’s working overnights at the radio station certainly took its toll on him physically so at least he relieved of that inconvenience.

Don who is also the owner of the internet station Pop Gold Radio is an advocate of oldies on the radio.  This station plays a good mix of hits from the 50s, 60s, and 70s and features a countdown show every week.  I do listen to it at least a few times a week.

I met him only twice:

  • Long Island Radio Day in April 2010 seen above
  • One of the Oldies Meet and Greets at Ben’s Deli

I speak for all his friends when I wish him all the best in his endeavors in and out of the radio business.  I understand that the radio business is tough, but he has persevered.
