This year I split vacation time with my grandkids. First with my two month old granddaughter, Zoey. She’s Ben’s and Maria’s first. I spent time in New Jersey as well. I saw my daughter Heather (and Alec) with my 5 year old granddaughter Lindsay and my 8 year old Lauren.
Bud, rockin’ out. Pretty much as soon as I arrived, I learned how to play guitar in Beatles Rockband.

Lauren and Alec, having spent 2 innings asking the 3rd base coach of the New Britain Rock Cats for a ball.
Lindsay finally got her ball – which took another 4 innings.
I’m with Lindsay and Lauren.
I decide to discuss Hurricane Irene Lauren .
That’s a wrap for this Family Edition at the Tape Radio Blog. We didn’t even fucking swear. Oops! We hope we’ve made a valuable contribution to The Blogosphere here. We realize that is a lofty expectation. WTIT: The Blog is back, either way. Same time. Same blog.

After a radio, nightclub and television career of over 25 years, I still write and perform comedy with essentially the same group of guys that I started with over 45 years ago. We began as WTIT: Tape Radio and have kept the moniker ever since. What WTIT is, however, a journal of a group of friends done in a radio morning show format playing the music of the era. We have every recording. We interviewed our girlfriends before “The Prom” or whatever. We shared growing up, getting married and having kids on WTIT. Later it was stories of divorces, new wives or girlfriends and grandchildren.
Just like with any group of friends, people came and left over the years. More than 50 gentlemen have sat around our big round table in what is now a state of the art digital recording studio. We still call it “Tape Radio” because we’re old guys who hate change. This comedy blog has won numerous awards and tells part of the story, but exists mostly to comment on life, politics, music and entertainment as it passed by our virtual window. One of our original guys left in 1985. But in 2013 he returned. So our starting five have three of the creators of WTIT.
Shortly after that on our http://facebook.com/WTITRADIO page we announced when our next recording night would be. Another of the original five had come back to join in. Galloping Gary, our brother, returned (since 1982) to record. The "Galloping Gary Garage Show" returned to WTIT in 2014. So for one special night (the first since 1973), four of the founding five were sitting at our table. The sight where all the guys who came after them had sat.
If you’re here for a laugh, we hope you enjoy your visit. If you’re here because of a cosmic accident where all of the web except this blog has gone, then we simply apologize. To learn more about WTIT visit WTIT.net. (View my
