MORE ABOUT BOB
Bob was born in London, England, and toured all over Europe as an infant, remembered nothing, and then grew up in the States, New York primarily. He majored in broadcasting at Marquette University in Milwaukee, and worked in and out of radio over the years. His first job was part time at (the now defunct) WEZW in Milwaukee, followed by his first full time job at WFPS in Freeport, Ill.
During the second half of the 80’s and most of the 90’s, he moved to Southern California and owned a fairly large mobile DJ company in Los Angeles called The Madd Platter, MCing wedding receptions and private parties. But he didn’t want to toss bouquets forever, so….
After a few part time stints at KOLA in San Bernardino, KBST in San Diego and a full time job at an oldies radio station in Las Vegas, in 2000 he landed at an AC station, 101.3 The Mix, in SoCal, doing the morning show, and lasted a whopping 17 years.
Alas, all good things need to come to an end, and that opened up another good thing at 103.9 WVBO. On with the show!
