When Denzel Washington gets nominated for portraying you, and Bob Dylan writes a song about you, you know your story’s important. The Hurricane Rubin Carter, who was wrongfully imprisoned for almost 20 years, passed away over the weekend. [Story Here] Here’s rare video of Bob Dylan doing his famous song about him on TV.
I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.)
After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself here in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999.
After watching my former company screw up the "Jammin' Oldies" thing for a couple of years, I settled in at what would eventually become iheartmedia, and iHeartradio, playing people's classic favorites... the best decision I ever made!
