A Radio Reunion of Sorts
Back in late 1998 to late 1999, Steve Cochran hosted the morning show on WKQI-FM, which at the time was known as Q95-5. John Heffron sidekicked with Steve, after surviving the Danny Bonaduce days and teaming up with one of the nicest guys in radio, Kevin O'Neill. I was also there during this time as the station's commercial production director. Around the same time my voice-over career was just starting to take off too. About half-way through that year, Steve needed a board-op, and I jumped at the chance--for just a little more money, and some donuts. Actually, it was a lot more fun than writing commercials for Laser Eye doctors. I also got a chance to do some voice impressions when the opportunity presented itself. Last week, Steve and John reunited at 720 WGN in Chicago. Check it out by clicking here. It was fun, and frightening when I realized that I can't count how long ago that job was on two hands. By the way, if you've never seen John Heffron's live stand-up act, do yourself a favor and check him out next time he's in your town. And if you've never heard of John and you're a guy in his 20's who needs some help, buy his book, "I Come to You From the Future: Everything You'll Need To Know Before You Know It!" He's done all the research for you, and it's available on Amazon.
