2/26/18 UPDATE: Video that I originally produced for DVD is now on YouTube. It’s embedded at the end of this post.

Half a day after CJazzPlus with Mike Chimeri aired on WCWP, I headed up to LIU Post for Homecoming festivities and the announcement of the 2013 inductees to the WCWP Hall of Fame.

After taking those three pics, I walked to WCWP, located in the Abrams Communications Center.

Following the LIU Post Pioneers football team’s 20-15 win over the Millersville Marauders, Bernie Bernard took over WCWP for the next three hours:

Meanwhile, outside, it was time for the big Hall of Fame announcement.

The announcement began with Pete Bellotti introducing Dr. Paul Forestell, the provost of LIU Post:

Dr. Forestell:

Then, Pete read off the names of the 2013 inductees: Steve Radoff, Harry Lowenthal, Bill Mozer (below)…

Jay Elzweig, Dan Cox, Pete Bellotti, Bill Mozer, Jeff Kroll, Dr. Paul Forestell:

Shortly after the announcement outside, Bernie broke the news on the air when she did a phone interview with Steve Radoff.

Mike Schanzer (aka Mike Hendryx) was also in on the conversation:

Congratulations to Steve, Harry, Bill, and Bernie your induction into the WCWP Hall of Fame.  The induction ceremony will be held on Saturday, April 20.
