I've been Dee jaying most of my life. As a kid I had my own show on my tape recorder which friends were forced to hear when they visited me.
In the early 60's I was a weekly guest on a folk music show on WNJR in Newark, NJ.
While in the Army I Dee jayed at local service clubs. After the service I Mc'd various types of park concerts in Brooklyn, NY.
In 1983 I became a weekly guest of Freddy The German Cowboy on WJDM in Elizabeth, New Jersey. From there we moved to another station that I consider my real beginning. We were now on WCNJ in Hazlet, NJ. Things changed for us as we were now doing our own solo shows. By 1985 I got very involved with this station as I was filling in for almost everybody. While there I started "The Pop Shoppe".
At one point I moved onto WPDQ in Freehold/Howell, NJ. where I made some new friends including Program director Dlanna who would eventually leave and start top shelf oldies where I stayed for 10 years.
And now I'm pleased to embark on my newest venture: joining Tony's station Memory Lane Oldies

Jerry Russell known to all as Chief.
Goldoldies/Goldradio is the brain child of Jerry Russell known to all as Chief.
The station was started some years ago, but due to ill health, Chief was unable to dedicate the time he wished to develop the station to it's full potential till early 2000. Chief lived in the beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack area of northeast Pennsylvania in the Pocono Mountains.
Ultimately, Chief’s vision was to Goldradio’s audience, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Chief wanted Goldradio to be the best interactive Music/Chat site on the internet.
With Chief’s passing in May, 2014, Goldradio went through a management change. Goldradio’s ownership was transferred from Chief to his wife, Chriss.
Chief wanted to give his audience American and British music not heard in it's purest form anywhere else in the world.
Goldradio’s format, strictly speaking, is Oldies, Doowop and Old Time Radio.
For example, Goldradio caters for both the casual doowop enthusiast to the professional hard-core rhythm and blues collector. Goldradio has three of the best dj's in this genre: George Frunzi, Mogie, and Carl Tancredi.
Listeners can access the music from the comforts of their computers. How?
Gold radio supports all internet connections from,
Dialup 24kbps to Cable/DSL 128kbps Stereo.
The following people along with his wife, helped make Chief’s dream a reality.
Lee Alder,Bud Francis , George Frunzi,Brenda VanHorn, John Mogavero, Carl Tancredi and Martin Worrel
Special thanks go to Lee Alder, who has been with Chief and Chriss from the beginning, Lee brought his much needed Technical skills to Goldradio. This has allowed for many features on the website to be available to our listeners.
DJ-Tomcat from Boise, Idaho (the capital city). I was born and raised in the Thousand Springs area of Idaho. Thousand Springs is located between Bliss, Idaho and Twin Falls, Idaho. I never would have fathomed me being an internet dj. I've been familiar with Goldradio for quite a while, but with a little bit of coaxing by the current staff, I took the bait and became an Oldies dj. I had the broadcasting software and about 1500 songs in my library. I was told it was "a good start." I currently have my own show "Listen To the Music" airing Sunday mornings from 11am to 1pm on the Oldies Stream. Please join me. This experience is all new to me and the way it is progressing, it may just be a permanent hobby.
