About Jerry: He's a native New Yorker who's always loved radio & music! He fell in love with the 'blues' while attending college in South Carolina. A pub, near campus where a friend worked, featured a lot of 'blues' on their jukebox… and Jerry was hooked! Jerry's radio career began in 1990 at WNYG 1440AM, on Long Island, and continued with on-air gigs at 94.3 WMJC, 104.7 WBEA and several years at 102.3 WBAB... before landing at WRCN in 2002. Jerry has been the MC at the Riverhead Blues Festival from 2002 through 2012! He has introduced several top blues acts, like Joe Bonamassa, James Cotton, Sonny Landreth, The Derek Trucks Band and Johnny Winter, to local stages and has written articles, promoting the blues, for several area publications. The 2007 Graveyard Blues festival was also featured on local television.
