I had my come to WMNF moment in the late 80s when I dialed down the FM band and landed on 88.5 and the Phil & Bill Show. As a girl with a rock ’n roll soul, my radio station didn’t change much after that. A few years later I heeded a desperate plea for phone answerers during a marathon and have been volunteering ever since. Through my work at many of WMNF’s concerts and special events, a remarkable friendship evolved between me and the extraordinary LindaLu. Though she knew I had zero ambition to be on-air, she managed to drag me kicking and screaming first onto the Sixties Show then onto Traffic Jam. Tuesdays from 3:30-6:00 are open to all listeners who want to party with two girls who have more fun than they legally should be allowed to have. Please don’t touch that dial!
