Rock and roll broadcasting with interviews.

I’ve been working in broadcasting for more than four decades….hosting shows on several major market radio stations, television networks, and production & advertising companies in the New York and Washington, DC metropolitan areas.  Some shows I’ve written, produced and hosted have been heard on various networks and syndication groups both nationally and internationally.

With a degree in Speech Arts from The American University in Washington, DC, in the early 1970s I got a job in New York radio at WABC-FM… a summer job that eventually turned into a 13-year stint at WPLJ the ABC owned NY flagship station and on their affiliates through the ABC Radio Network. Over the years I have worked for ABC, CBS, and NBC, Rolling Stone Magazine, HBO, Cinemax, and syndicators like United Stations Radio Network, DIR Broadcasting and The Global Satellite Network. In the 80s & 90s, I spent 10 years New York’s K-Rock (WXRK), and wrote and produced several internationally syndicated radio programs including Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Continuous History of Rock & Roll,” “RockWatch,” and “New Waves” for NPR.  I’ve had the opportunity to spend time with a ton of celebrities, actors & actresses, rock stars, bands and political & sports figures. Sadly, some of them have passed away since. Some brief impressions of just a few of the people I have interviewed:

David Bowie- he was very polite articulate; Wilt Chamberlain- the biggest hand I ever shook; Billy Joel- just your typical Long Islander; Elton John- talkative, friendly and funny; Paul McCartney- I was in awe sitting next to a Beatle; The pseudo metal band Ratt- rude and conceited idiots; Steve Winwood- stuttering throughout the interview….needed to do some major editing; Ann & Nancy Wilson (Heart)- their dogs were crawling all over me; Don Mattingly- his handshake practically broke my wrist; ZZ Top- they were farting bad and nationwide during the interview in the Waldorf  Hotel; Thomas Dolby- a genius, spoke with him multiple times; Robin Gibb (Bee Gees)- one of my favorite interviews of all time; Jason Mraz- so creative and quick witted; Guster- Just about the friendliest guys you could want to meet

For the few years when I was out of radio, I ran a bakery, built some houses in Westchester, owned a restaurant, traveled and raised a family. I’ve been a lifelong resident of Westchester County and dedicate a lot of energy to two specific charities: The Pediatric Cancer Foundation and Open Door Family Medical Centers, where I’m a past member of their Foundation Board. I joined The Peak near its inception in June of 2004. After seeing a bus poster for a new radio station and listening for a half hour, I knew I had to work there! It’s the most creative station with the broadest format any radio lover could want to work for.  I’m married to a girl I went to high school with and we have three kids; twin girls and a boy, all adults working and living in NYC, My son Robbie is one of the leaders of the band East Love.  My daughters are Allie and Lucie.  Allie’s in finance and Lucie’s a lifestyle host, video producer and internet influencer.  She makes cool videos for brands, many of which have millions of views.  Follow her on Instagram @luciebfink.

My show on The Peak, from 3-7 PM Monday through Friday has several daily features.  We check traffic twice an hour between 4 and 7 PM.  Just before 5 every day, I present “The Peak Homestretch,” an hour of commercial free music to provide the soundtrack to your late afternoon activities during rush hour, and then “After 6” every day, we let it all hang out, with a creative
