Re: Maury Speaking French on WOTW


Maury had to have been in his late 40s when I worked for him 32 years ago at
WOTW (on Lund Road).   He's got to be in his 80s now!  His "Big Moe Golden
Oldies Show" began there in the 60s.

Thanks for the memory and the reverie...

I remember Jimmy and Helen Legios, and their son Jim Jr., who did news at
WOTW in the late 1960s and early 70s.

Does anyone remember Mike Ivers, Ernie Jenkins, Bill Patterson, Phil

Glenn Spatola?
