I was not at all sure if I wanted to take on such a huge responsibility; but after trepidation, I accepted and still hold the position. I love searching for real music and sharing with our listeners. Twenty one years of volunteering at a station I truly love and I hope to be here another twenty. Sharon Jaye is an enthusiastic and talented music connoisseur.
