From Larry Lisk:

My love affair with WMNF began upon my arrival to the Tampa area in 1980.
While spinning the old analog dial on my car radio I stumbled on Ann the
Reggae lady and I was hooked. It took me several months to figure out just
where I had landed on that dial as the frequency was a guess at best. All I
know was that whenever I was on that extreme left hand side of the dial
there was great music coming out of my radio. As soon as I figured out what
WMNF was all about, I started donating during marathons and attending WMNF
music events. Rob Lorei's "Bop City Blues" was a favorite show and it
rekindled my love of the blues. In 1991, I decided that donating at
marathons was not enough and I began to volunteer at the station. I
answered phones at marathons, manned the door at many station events and
generally did what I could, when I could, for this great little radio
station. During that time I guest hosted a few shows, was checked out on
the board and became a substitute programmer. In 1998, a vacancy was
created on the afternoon programming schedule and I was asked to "audition"
for the job. Harrison Nash and I alternated Tuesday afternoons until
January 1999 when I was offered a time slot for the Afternoon Rhythm and
Blues Cruise (Harrison became the Wednesday afternoon programmer). The
Blues Lover show officially became part of the WMNF schedule and remained a
mainstay on the afternoon schedule for 12 years. In 2011 the show was moved
to its current spot on the Monday night schedule. I am honored to be able
to play the blues for you on the radio and thank you for your continuous
