The host Rich Keith is a radio guy who grew up in the New York Metropolitan Area in the 1960s and 1970s.
According to Rich, “A few misguided college professors think that they taught me how to be a broadcaster, while, in reality, the best broadcast schools in the world were available all up and down the New York Radio dial”.
Rich’s reflections of his radio education: “The Harvard and Yale of on air radio schools was WNEW 1130. The faculty included William B Williams, Ted Brown, Jim Lowe and Al Jazzbeaux Collins. I took my daytime lessons in the “Make Believe Ballroom” and went to night school in the Purple Grotto”.
Rich’s thoughts on Metromedia Radio, “It’s a kick to be part of the Metromedia Radio team. Music all day from the Great American Songbook presented in the Spirit of Metromedia WNEW…and the “New York Tonight Show” Saturdays from 9pm to Midnight ET.
