JackRaymondRadio.Com is filled with old photographs rescued from the rear of dusty drawers, almost forgotten file cabinets and old wooden picture frames. The new Digital Age makes everything old, new again. And because I’m always in a retrieval mode and enjoy the past, you’ll hear and see a hundreds of tid-bits from America’s Pop Culture Past, hear audio samples of AM Top-40 Radio and lots of trivia about Brockton, Massachusetts (my hometown). Content is King.
Back in the 60’s, radio brought thousands to hear a single DJ; today our web-site (media station) brings thousands of ideas to a single person. The 20th Century was all about “hits”; the 21st Century is all about niches. The worldwide web is the new phone book and this is our Yellow Pages entry. This site is a great place to learn about personality radio and show biz in general.
It’s designed for 24/7 consumption by viewers and listeners around the world.
Radio stations come and go but websites are forever. Jack’s Blog contains digitized photos and stories from the past. Unfortunately, today the world of radio has become big, complicated and there aren’t any radio heroes at the moment. But on our Heroes Page you can see and hear many of the all time great radio DJ’s via audio files from our collection. You can also view show biz Legends and you can see which Decade made them famous. Our offerings also include a Boomers page with pictures, names and dates. There is a Show Biz Interview featuring an audio interview so you can hear legends chat about their careers. On the Brockton pages you’ll find the content is 92 octane.
I was incredibly lucky to discover Kim Wallace Pehi @ Infinite Dezine, an artsy, craftsy web designer, who brought this website to life. Her dad, who I never met, had been a fan of my radio program. For that reason, she helped me while I endured some trying times. She’s been an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Thanks Kim.
