i have listened to Ken since i found wfmu back in 1985.
Avatar 9:34am Linda Lee:

Ken's the type who doesn't delegate responsibility. he's the overanxious mommy. guess that's why he's ill. he needs a co-manager!

Un Employable - "2 of my favorite words" as Homer Simpson might say.. [He actually said that when the BB team he coached won by "default"]...
  9:37am wfmu listener phillip:

shame about Liz Berg leaving i thought at some time KEN would retire and Liz Berg wpmould be station manager.
  9:38am Morphe:

Found FMU in the 70s looking for NYU.. It was a fundraiser and they threatened to play THE EAGLES if people did not pledge immediately.. I knew it was special...
  9:40am wfmu listener phillip:

i got so damn tired of Z100 and scott shannon and ross britian. i turned my fm antenns into a pieces of artwork to get Wfmu clearly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40am Ken From Hyde Park:

I used to picture DJ Keili eventually becoming the station manager.
  9:41am wfmu listener phillip:

i lived on greene ave in bushwick brooklyn. you know how hard it was to get wfmu clealry. good luck!
