I was honored to kick off this year’s WCWP Homecoming Weekend with a live edition of Instrumental Invasion with Mike Chimeri yesterday at noon.

I went right to bed after getting home from the 50th anniversary celebration on Thursday night because I had to get up at sunrise yesterday morning. That allowed me time to edit pictures and video that you saw in the above post before getting a ride from my father up to WCWP at around 8:45.

As a result, I arrived 2 1/2 hours early, which gave me plenty of time to set up. I took a few pictures when I entered Studio 1:

The next six pictures were taken while my show was on the air:

Joel Feltman took this shot:

LIU Post/WCWP alumnus Tom Murphy caught some of my show on 88.1 FM. When he heard it was Homecoming Weekend, he decided to drop by the station. He was complimentary of the music I played.

His fellow alum Dan Cox requested a picture, and I was more than happy to oblige:
MC100915012a

Tom wasn’t the only one complimentary of my show. Jeff and Pat Kroll, and the aforementioned Joel Feltman, were equally laudatory.

After my show, it was Jeff Kroll’s turn:

He’ll be on plenty this weekend.

Jeff’s setup:
MC100915015a

MC100915016a

MC100915017a

MC100915018a

MC100915019a

Next on the schedule was Joel Feltman:
MC100915022a

MC100915024a

MC100915025a

MC100915026a

MC100915027a

On my way to the bus stop, heading for home, I noticed a familiar name on the LIU Post Alumni Walk: Fred Gaudelli. This sign was posted by Pell Hall:
MC100915029a

There’s also a Ted David sign by the Great Lawn, which I took a picture of two weeks ago:
MC92515006a

I’ll be back later today for Homecoming itself and the announcement of the 2016 WCWP Hall of Fame class. (10/11 UPDATE: Click here for the recap.) I’ll conclude this post, no pun intended, with my show’s playlist:

…along with video and audio of my airchecks, which includes the beginning of Jeff’s show:
