Some tidbits on me
I always wanted to be in radio ever since I pretended I was Casey Kasem in my parents’ living room in Cobalt, Connecticut when I was ten. The last 18 + years spent as the co-host of the Jay & Ben Show, on what has now become 4 stations, Magic 590 & 100.5 Albany as well as 96.9 and 1410 for our listeners in the Glens Falls, Queensbury, South Glens Falls and the Lake George Region. You can also hear me on the Capital Region’s Oldies Station, weekdays from 10am to noon.
I have lived in Hoosick Falls since December of 1988 and although I currently live in New York, I am a Red Sox Fan. However, I am also a Giants, Knicks (Ouch) and Carolina Hurricanes (old Hartford Whalers) fan… Go figure!
My wife Laurie and I have been married since December of 1983 and we have 2 children. My Daughter Amanda and son-in-law Andy live in Cohoes, with our Grand Cat Pumpkin. My son Brett and Daughter-in-law Selena live in Duluth Georgia with our Grand Dog Terra.
Thank you for your patronage to Magic 590 + 100.5 and for checking out the website.
