Saturday, March 25th, 9pm - Midnight: Radio great, Dennis McNamara
This Saturday night, Pat welcomes radio great Dennis McNamara on the show to talk about his history and crazy stories in radio as well as the upcoming documentary film: "Dare To Be Different" which hits Tribeca Film Festival this April. Denis McNamara played an important part in music radio influencing the careers of musicians around the world. He is an award winning programmer and a personality for Long Island stations WLIR and WDRE. In 1982, WLIR couldn’t compete with the megastations in Manhattan so McNamara urged the station’s owner, Elton Spitzer to change formats, to provide listeners with the “new music” becoming popular in Europe which was risky and cutting edge, and not available anywhere else in America at the time. Some wanted a more commercial adult contemporary sound but McNamara urged his boss to "Dare To Be Different". After Spitzer accepted the challenge, McNamara led WLIR to greatness by introducing America to European groups such as U-2, The Police, The Clash, The Cure, Simple Minds and Depeche Mode and championing American artists such as Joan Jett, Talking Heads, The Ramones and Blondie. Listen in for a fun chat and maybe even a round or two of "Hit the post"!
