May 1 is my 30th anniversary on-air with 92 Moose. Pleased function-a-versary to me.
I begun listed here as ‘Renee in the Midday’…since I was functioning 10 am to 2 pm. That goes way back to when our studios and places of work ended up on the 4th flooring of the aged Casco Financial institution Developing on Memorial Circle.
This was not my initially work in radio, I started off my radio profession in Ellsworth at WWMJ in January of 1986…I obtained my occupation that working day the place shuttle Challenger exploded and I experienced a few careers just before I ended up on-air at WMME 92Moose.
30 yrs…gees…that is the duration of a usual property finance loan!
My initially cup of espresso and the initial time I was stopped for rushing took place my very first 7 days of carrying out the 92 Moose Morning Show.
30 yrs in the past pcs were in essence a novelty in our residences and had not produced their way into our workspace. As for the internet was on the verge of currently being a detail and when it initial became available to most of us it was dial-up and Prodigy and AOL ended up the massive names. Now, if we have a personal computer, world-wide-web, or community concerns, it can just take us down. We have had a good deal of new know-how occur into our professional life more than the decades our to start with station cell telephone was a bag cell phone (Google that 1, young children) and a handful of vehicles that had the honor of becoming a 92 Moose Caboose.
In my own existence, I have been divorced, had my heart damaged much more than once, dropped my beloved CoffeeDog on my birthday in 2006, and in 1992 missing a little one. There have been a handful of health scares alongside the way, but they had been just that…scares. I have owned a pair of houses. Over the several years, I have had corrective eye medical procedures for my vision and missing above 60 lbs from functioning with some of our consumers. I have absent to massage school and graduated from school. In 2010 ShadowDog came into my lifestyle. And previously in 2021, I had breast reduction medical procedures, and it has been a good conclusion.
I have produced a good deal of close friends alongside the way, and some have become family to me. Honestly, there are much too a lot of people today to point out who have touched my existence, so I will not even begin down that road.
As for great occasions, there is no scarcity of those people far too. When I started out below 30 decades ago, social media was not a detail, so I do have some old photos but not numerous. Underneath you will locate a fast selection of recollections from a brief journey down memory lane with Facebook.
What is my favorite memory?
There are a lot…we would be below for days with stories… but the working day Jon and I rode horses via the Dunkin’ travel-through on Western Ave in Augusta for Commute Yet another Way Day. We rode the horses from the Augusta Plaza to Funds Park for the event. That, my mates, was a excellent working day at function.
