Hi, Tim! How wonderful to hear from you, too! When I saw your pic appear here the other day, I kept asking myself if that was you; I gave the situation the benefit of the doubt. How serendipitous!
Unfortunately, Iost that gig two and a half years ago, (I was there eight years to the week, to the day) due to budget cuts, and after being out of it for about 14 months, I took a part-time job as an associate producer/traffic reporter with the Columbus branch of Metro Networks, only to lose that gig only about five or six months later, as they were in a restructuring phase. They just bailed on Columbus
a week or so ago, and relocated the operation to Detroit, where they'll do traffic for that city, as well as Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Indianapolis. I just lost out on a gig with a small station in Newark, Ohio, about 45 minutes east of here. I've been liviong off my savings, and with both no "real job" skills, and 28 years in a "specialized" field...well....there's an on-line seminar for wayward and displaced radio talent next week, and I've signed up for that. I've been looking for a "real" job, but another problem I have (not counting my age) is that the Ohio job market (like Columbus' music scene) generally sucks .
If not for my girlfriend, whom I live with (she has a house), I would've bolted within 20 minutes after losing my job (well, not quite THAT fast, but you get the gist). Anyway, I miss Connectcut, although I doubt I could afford to live there now (it'll be nine years in August that my folks moved to Florida). Anyway, if I may impose upon you to ask your brother to fill you in on all the other incidentals and particulars, and he has my e-mail address, I welcome this (insanely wonderful) cyber-reunion to continue! I trust you've also seen my "guitarsenal." Whad'ya think? DAVE

Everyone said go to Manny's so my dad took me there when I was 12. Shocked me by buying me a set of 1965 Ludwigs for my upcoming Bar Mitzvah. I was never religious, but am still drumming! Danny Burgauer took care of me in the old store, at 120 W…
