Introduction CURRENTLY NO LONGER DOING THE WMBR SHOW DUE TO A COMBINATION OF PHYSICAL AND ECONOMIC ISSUES. I HOPE TO BE ABLE TO RETURN TO IT SOMEDAY. - For 35 years I was a weekly host of the "Lost & Found" 1960s/'70s show on WMBR 88.1 FM at MIT in Cambridge MA, recreating late '60s/'70s FM "Free-Form Underground" radio with "lost" album rock, progressive rock, psychedelia, folk, folk-rock, country-rock, blues and more. I still work as a part-time announcer/engineer at WBUR 90.9 FM, Boston's NPR News Station, and I've hosted programs on area stations WATD 95.9 FM Marshfield MA, WUMB 91.9 FM U. Mass Boston, WZBC 90.3 FM Boston College, WHRB 95.3 FM Harvard U., and defunct oldies stations WMEX 1150 AM Boston and WKBR 1250 AM Manchester, NH.
