Today, July 3rd, marks my 26th anniversary at PYX 106. My first day on the air was one I’ll never forget. PYX was live from Lake George and I actually para-sailed into the Boardwalk Restaurant to do my first show. That's me hanging on for dear life in the photo!
At that time I was on the air in the afternoon, Mason and Sheehan were doing mornings, Cliff Nash midday, and some of you may remember Grego doing evenings. We were playing much of the same great music we are playing today although it was brand new then… Pink Floyd On The Turning Away, Springsteen Tunnel of Love, Bon Jovi Livin On A Prayer, U2 Joshua Tree, John Mellencamp Paper in Fire, and the list goes on.
I want to thank you guys for listening to PYX 106 for all of these years… from "Crank it Up" to "Capitaland’s Rock and Roll Authority", to "Classic Rock Forever-Yes" (never liked that one), to "Capitaland’s Only Classic Rock" you are the ones that make the station what it is. It is your support, and the support you have for some of the greatest music ever made that has made PYX 106 part of the fabric of Capitaland for over 30 years. Thank you!
