Delphine Blue (1985-1986) - I got my job at WLIR because the station was doing co promotions at the Ritz on East 11th street where I had been djing for five years. Larry the Duck was instrumental in making it happen as he would hang in the dj booth on nights when he announced the band. I see Larry at Sirius off and on now because we both do First Wave. I also saw Denis McNamara for the first time in nineteen yeas a few weeks ago, also at Sirius.

WLIR was great. I loved it. Its the only commercial radio gig I had because after the year I worked there, playlists at radio stations all over the country shrank with no choice for djs in terms of music or their knowledge, except perhaps at LIR. So I continued my career on non-commercial radio. I was at WBAI in Manhattan for 14 years. Then I went to WFUV and now I'm on Sirius 26, 25 and 22 as well as WPS1.org and eastvillageradio.com and occasionally on WBAI 99.5fm. I really loved working at WLIR and am glad I'm part of its legacy...



Maxx (1985-1990) - "In my civilian life I program/produce in-store music video networks. If you go into a Foot Locker or Champs Sports, the video program is what my company produces.

In Seattle I worked for Muzak as head of their music video division - and no, we didn't program elevator music videos! But, particularly after 9/11, I really wanted to return home and so am doing similar work for a NY-based company." "Where can you hear me? Well, I'm flattered that you want to but right now, nowhere! I enjoyed DJing on LIR/DRE, but mostly because of the music."


The Cat (dates pending) - Started working in New York before meeting her husband, Coach star I started working at WDRE. I lived in Toronto for many years before going to NY. I did a bunch of TV & film stuff (SCTV among others) but I suppose my most well known gig was at MUCHMUSIC. I was their first female VJ- a rather dubious honour which certainly dates me! I started in radio in New york at WDRE. Warren (station mgr at the time) knew me from Toronto & had always wanted me to do radio. I had done a few radio comedy shows but not an on air person.So he finally convinced me.I have been doing a lot of singing these days. I sing Jazz, blues, standards etc & perform sporadically around the greater Los Angeles Area.


Laurie Gail - (dates pending) - Worked at WFNX in Boston as Music Director from 1990-2000. I am a programmer for Promo Only, I pick tracks for their Alternative Club disc and work on Promo Only MPE, their digital delivery system.

I worked as a Music Supervisor on compilation CDs for retail promotions, worked at Instant Live/Clear Channel, I work for an artist management company, and serve as fashion stylist for music video shoots. All in my home town of Boston, MA.
