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:








Bernie Bernard took this picture of me as “Down the Wire” by Spyro Gyra was playing:

Back to vidcaps as I smirk at my camcorder after bobbing my head in time to “W.C. Handy Hop” by Gerald Albright:


Closing the show…

…and turning the mic off:

Back in Studio 1 at WCWP, Jay Mirabile’s “Disco and Funk King Show” followed me:

Jay and WCWP Homecoming Coordinator Alan Seltzer:



Jay and Eli W. Sen:

Then, I joined in:

We conclude this recap with some webcam shots from Studio 1:

See you next year!
