In the Fall of 2000, I completed radio/TV school over many weeks attending classes at night, and after a brief intern stint with WROR’s promotions department and working with the legendary Loren and Wally http://www.wror.com/loren-and-wally/ , I joined WBOQ http://www.northshore1049.com/ as an intern and wound up becoming a sidekick on the Daybreak morning show with Dana Hersey, Kendal Buhl, and JP Lewis. Daybreak was a morning news, sports, and talks show from 6-9 AM, and they were always looking for interesting things to do.
My wife suggested I dress up as Cupid for Valentine’s Day, and the rest is history. So, on Valentine’s Day 2001, I wound up delivering flowers and candy to five North Shore [of Boston] locations to people whose “valentines” had won a contest.
So, Happy Valentine’s Day, from one of Cupid’s helpers, so to speak.
