Below are just a few of Doc's Irregulars...

The other half of The Double D's - Dustin Rehrig’s love of everything music began early. Dustin started playing and performing on drums at the tender age of just 3 years old! Since then, Dustin has continued to expand his musical experiences beyond performing and playing drums. Dustin has worked in nearly every capacity of the music industry. Over the past 40 years Dustin has performed as a professional drummer, an artist manager, a tour manager, an audio engineer, an artist agent, sound designer, lighting designer, production manager, has run his own highly successful artist management company, and that’s just a few of the skills Dustin has mastered! Now he's a Vidiot and adds color commentary to some of The Doc's Madness & brings a lil' Madness to the show himself. 

Kate, as a wanna be security officer with her own set of hand-cuffs reached out to this station by way of her own project, The Hofford Mill. An Entertainment Complex that includes a Huge Bar, Eatery, Axe Throwing, Coffee House & Hostel located on the D & L Trail. (click the above link for all the happenings at The Mill) Since that first meeting between Doc & Kate she continues to bring some Fantastic  ideas to this station. She to is all about supporting local as much as we are, having Fun and all about working together. Plus, as The Doc's GF/Partner in all the Craziness she's the only one that can put him in his place.......ALMOST. 

The Al Burke Classic Rock Show Every Weekday afternoon 1 - 5 

Al Grew up listening to Philadelphia AM radio...WFIL...WIBG..WCAM IN CAMDEN.....his favorites were Jerry Blavit..the Geater with the Heater, Joe Niagra, Jim Obrian, and Long John Wade...AND AL DREAMED ABOUT DOING WHAT THEY DID FOR A LIVING. Al had many jobs that he hated...mostly sales jobs. 

Al Worked at WRAW-Am in Reading...Playing big band music and standards like Sinatra, Nat King Cole etc. Then the owners of Y102 Reading bought WRAW and kept Al on to do Mornings...on BOTH stations!...Playing Madonna on the FM Top 40 station and Tony Bennet on the AM LOL. The owners of Y102 then bought 2 stations in Melbourne Fl.. Al flipped the FM from country to top 40 and Y102 Melbourne was born. But in the process in flipping the stations format the Cops were called. Ask Al about "The Hit Men" comin' to Melbourne.

 

In 1989 it was back to Reading from Fl. to start a new station …Changing WBYN Boyertown to WYCL 107.5 Adult Contemporary format...Al was fired by a new consultant  (a guy in a suit) after 1 year...and Al vowed to someday put them out of business!   

 

Al was hired at WIOV-FM Lancaster Pa to do afternoon Drive. Yes, Al had a cowboy hat and Boots to look the part when he was introducing artists and Mc'ing various concerts.

 

'91 Al got the chance to be the Program Director at WRFY...and lived to see the day when WYCL would go off the air.  Al Created the Rock hits format resulting in #1 Arbitron ratings for 22 consecutive years.

 

Al left after 22 yrs. because too many guys in suits from New York and San Antonio Texas wanted to fuck up a winning station.

 

The Al Burke Classic Rock Show every weekday afternoon 1 - 5 on Colossal Radio will include features like - This Day in Music History and the Strange but True News, lots of Classic Rock and a chance for Al to play whatever the hell he wants and more importantly what You wanna hear.
