One dee-jay's long and winding road

This month marks the 25th Anniversary since I started hosting a Beatles program on terrestrial radio!

My show was originally called the "All-Request Beatles Show," and it actually started on college radio first, on WNYT, the radio station of the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, Long Island, for 1 1/2 years, before it moved to New Jersey rock station WDHA-FM, where it ran for 10 consecutive years. In 1995-96, during the Beatles' Anthology craze, the show aired on Long Island's oldies station B-103, WBZO-FM.

"Every Little Thing" and the "All-Request Beatles Show" featured the most interesting thematic sets, along with the complete catalogue of Beatles and solo-music, plus cover versions, tribute songs, side projects, novelty records, music from family members, and original interviews. My shows have also featured the latest Beatle News, and, during its years on WDHA-FM, over 20 different types of Beatle games and trivia, with great prizes to go along with them.

Since 2003, I've been featured on two of XM's channels, on their 60's channel as host of the "Beatle News" and "Beatle Breaks" segments, and on their Fine Tuning channel 76 with the one-hour show "Every Little Thing," which carries on the same tradition as my shows on WDHA-FM and WBZO-FM. In total, I've now hosted over 600 shows on the Beatles!

Among the many people I've interviewed over the years for "Every Little Thing" and the "All-Request Beatles Show" include Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Olivia Harrison, Pattie Boyd, Carl Perkins, Mark Lewisohn, Nancy Lee Andrews, Ken Mansfield, and Denny Laine.

It's really hard for me to believe it all started 25 years ago this month (really 26, if you count college radio!) I want to send a big thank you out to all my listeners from my days at WDHA-FM, B-103 and now at Sirius-XM for their support. It's the greatest honor for me to be playing music from the Beatles' entire careers right up to today. And thanks to you Dave, for letting the fans know about the newest "Every Little Thing" shows, and posting audio from interviews heard in my programs here on the Beatles News Blog.

As always, you can write to me with comments about the shows to everylittlething@att.net.
