ira Posted August 23, 2007 Share Posted August 23, 2007 Dennis Elsas has been a fixture on New York Radio for over 3 decades.When I was merely a "Yute" (For definition see "My Cousin Vinny") and attending Brooklyn College...Dennis was a guiding force on Progressive Radio Station WNEW-FM.Dennis was,is,and has always been....a major "Raspberries Supporter" even while most of his fellow "Progressive Brethren" "didn't get it".He introduced the 'Berries at the BB King show in New York...and you can read all about him and his history with the "Raspberries" in "Marathon Man" by B.Hogya and Ken Sharpe.On Monday I had the good fortune to meet Dennis while touring WFUV-FM in New York.Like a school boy...I excitedly told him about seeing him at BB King's,gave him the details of Eric's birthday appearance at WAB 5-0 and showed him a photo of my proudest moment...standing with Eric and Cool Chick Auntie at the party.I also told Dennis how Eric told me when we were chatting at the party that Dennis was one of the few who "Got" the "Raspberries" on New York Radio in the 70's...which I know Dennis felt good about.After my visit I e-mailed Dennis a note...and he responded by writing back that he didn't mind if I summarized my visit with him on EC.Com,that he took a look at our site and enjoyed it and enjoyed the photos of WAB-50...and he sent Bernie regards.A coupla things I gotta mention.1-Dennis is a very warm,nice,man.2-I got to see an in-studio concert by a group called the Magic Numbers...and hear Dennis interview them....Both Dennis and the "Numbers" were great!3-You should all get a chance to hear Dennis.He is on Sirius Classic Vinyl 6-10 a.m. Eastern ,and on WFUV-90.7-FM and over the internet from 2 to 6 p.m. dailyMan! Ec.com has been such a great experience that has led to so much good stuff!-Ira. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
