Living a lifetime dream.
About Me
When Les was a child in England, he used to act out being a DJ on an old Gramaphone at his Grandmothers house. He loved every minute of pretending to be a radio personality, hoping some day he would have a job on the radio. One of Les’s favorite radio stations was Radio Luxembourg. He would listen to “The Alan Freed Show” and first heard Little Richard, Fats Domino and Bill Haley. Another radio station that played “Rock n Roll” was “Radio Caroline” a pirate radio ship broadcasting off the coast of England in the North Sea. As the years went by an opportunity arrived where he was asked to fill in for a person who had to be away for a couple of weeks. He agreed and started working as a relief DJ on Saturday afternoon, fulfilling a lifetime dream. After couple of years the opportunity came along for Les to host his own program on WVBR. That program can now be heard every Saturday afternoon from 3:00pm till 6:00pm called “Turn of the Century” featuring tunes from the 90‘s and later. Before coming to WVBR, Les was a Freelance Video Journalist supplying news video from the Central New York region to CNN and TV Stations in major markets. His video reports were a regular feature on Syracuse and Binghamton TV News.
