was incredibly surprised to see my "oldies DJ" pseudonym "Eric
Parker" anywhere on the web! I was on WKBR with that name for
just their last four months as a live music station playing oldies
in late 1990. The "plug" was finally pulled in the first week
of 1991. I had known of WKBR since 1967 when my family had driven
through New Hampshire on trips. I could faintly hear it in certain
spots in the suburbs north and west of Boston. It was truly a
great legendary independent rock'n'roll station, like the original
WMEX here in Boston.
"Eric Parker" also did oldies on the second-generation WMEX Boston
1150 AM in 1988, but I have not used that name or done commercial
radio since WKBR January 1991. I've done a 60's/70's rock show
under my real name at noncommercial WMBR MIT radio in Cambridge
MA for nearly 20 years, and do overnight board-op and announcing
at WBUR, Boston's NPR news station.
I could make airchecks available of my "Eric Parker" work at WKBR
and WMEX at some point if you'd like. The WMEX airchecks are in
true AM stereo! Who knows, maybe someday I'll see if "Eric" can
find live work again in the Granite state!
