WNAS RADIO AUDIO MEMORIES
I had a very unique opportunity in high school, one
that very few students ever get. I had the privilige
of attending New Albany High School (Class Of '91) in
New Albany, Indiana. This school, part of the New
Albany/Floyd County Consolidated School Corporation,
is home of the first high school radio station in the
world, WNAS-FM. WNAS signed on the air in 1949, and
continues to broadcast to a 50-mile radius of
Southern Indiana with 2,850 watts, and they now have
a cable TV channel on the local cable system. I
served many capacities during my short time at WNAS,
including Operations Director, Public Service
Director, and self-appointed Weather Director.
The times I spent at WNAS were some of the most
memorable of my life. I met some lifelong friends,
gained invaluable experience that would help me land
future jobs in broadcasting, and had moments that I
will treasure forever. I wish to thank my mentor, Lee
Kelly, the General
Manager of WNAS, for his encouragement and support
throughout my time at NAHS.

grooves in full hip-hop DJ mode.

who is never at a loss for words except for this
time...what did he say again?

Christmas Card, some heartfelt comments from me to
all of our loyal listeners.

You"-one of the most humorous mistakes that i
ever made...cueing the wrong song up at the end of
our Top 80 of The 80's countdown, and truly ruining
- "The 1980's"-a
radio promo that I did for the Top 80 of The 80's
Countdown, one of my final radio moments at WNAS.

the day (my version).
