Last night, I filled in for Martin Phillips on “Thursday Night Jazz” on 88.1 FM WCWP.

Here is the aircheck of the show.

And here are pictures of me that I took with the 10-second self-timer on my camera:

This Thursday, October 29, on 88.1 FM WCWP, I’ll be filling in for Martin Phillips on “Thursday Night Jazz.”  The show airs live from 10PM to 1AM ET.  I worked on my playlist last night and made a few edits to it today.  It should be a fun show with songs spanning 50 years; from 1959 to 2009.

See you Thursday.

11/1 UPDATE: You can hear the show’s aircheck in this post.

Earlier recap: 2008
Later recaps: WCWP 50th Anniversary (2011), 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018

I arrived on campus for this year’s Homecoming shortly after 2:30.  Unlike last year, the weather was cloudy (at least when I arrived), warm, and humid.

After putting all my equipment (and two bottles of soda) down at WCWP, I walked to Hickox Field to soak in the Homecoming atmosphere.

This year, the C.W. Post Pioneers football team played the Shippensburg Red Raiders.

The press box:

The WCWP play-by-play announcers were in the lower right corner.

Here’s a closer look:

The Pioneers won 40-24.

After I got back to WCWP, the rains came, and they were heavy.

There were even a few rumbles of thunder, including a loud crash.

Across from Studio 1, I noticed the print version of Jim Merritt’s Newsday recap of this year’s Long Island Radio & TV Day.

Here I am with fellow alumni Jonathan Focarino, Stephanie Koithan, Jay Mirabile, and Pete Bellotti:

The same people, but with another alumna: M.J.:

Bobby G. and Bernie Bernard:

Bernie was the board operator during Steve and Birdy’s radio show, which led in to mine.

At 6:30, I headed to the Pioneer Room in Hillwood Commons to set up for my show from the WCWP Homecoming Dinner.

Here is the audio aircheck from the show.

The same audio mixed with video from my camcorder:

And here are some vidcaps, starting with me counting down to go on:
