I’ve always had my radar up for things that my station or clients could jump on and in the Spring of 1991, my radar pinged a target. I was at the late GREAT Kiss 102 in Charlotte. That station was a monster. Jo Jo Wright was doing Nights and Mark Shands and Erik Bradley had one of the tightest, most amazing Rhythm formats in Radio.
I was on my way to an event and a few people were up at the front desk giving one of the AE’s wads of cash. A drug deal! Cool! Count me in!
