Ron Robin returns to his roots...
Everyone remembers Ron Robin, right...?
They say once you've been bitten by the radio bug, you can never get it out of your system.
Ron is currently running a restaurant in Provincetown called "The Mews", and is planning (with partners) on purchasing WCDJ.
Ron Robin Sets Sights on ‘Oldies’ Station
Robin says he and his partners plan to broadcast an oldies music format, covering the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. He says he anticipates taking an on-air shift, possibly in the form of a morning show where he can talk to people on-air and “clown around a bit.”
“Of course I’m a ham, so I love getting back on the air,” he says.
Wikipedia says the station is not on the air regulalry, and have had difficulty with local officials and zoning, etc.
They grabbed the "WCDJ" letters, after a station in Boston flipped formats (and call letters). (Is the current incarnation of WCDJ doing mostly jazz?)
The article states that they are currently looking for a new transmitter site....here is their current coverage map.
It would be good for the Robbin to be Bobbin again after all these years. Congratulations and best of luck Ron. Dick SummerPost a Comment
