A Cupid By Any Other Name

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.

      It’s not only true, but, because of it, my wife got her on air name, Mrs. Highpants. It was 14 degrees February 14, 2001. I had to hit Essex — first stop — just before 6AM. A wife gave her husband flowers and Turtle Alley Chocolates.
