Shortly after John graduated from Southern Connecticut State University,
he landed his first job in radio. The Program Director gave him some of
the best advice he has ever received. He said, “the Broadcasting
business is very fickle, you can be here today and gone tomorrow; so you
should have a Plan B.” John listened and the next day he dipped into his
savings and bought his first sound system. Within two weeks, he was DJing
his first party. That was over 25 years ago! In addition to being the
