I just discovered, in browsing the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's website, the distressing news that the very first radio station I ever worked for is leaving the air on New Year's day.
I started broadcasting at 120-watt KYMC (89.7 FM) in the summer of 1984, when I was 15 years old. It played a massive role in my career development. If there's somebody out there who has a wad of money to donate to the West County YMCA to keep the station going, you'd be doing a good thing.
Unfortunately, I don't have a wad of money of my own to donate, since my experience at KYMC played a massive role in my career development and thus actually led me into working in the radio industry.
