Well hello WRGY fans! My name is Doug Clive and I host “Doug’s Variety Hour” on Monday morning’s at 9:00 AM.
Recently I was asked to give a little bio about myself and what led me to get involved in the fun of local community radio.
Well I was born with a toy microphone in my crib. Just kidding! Truthfully, I was never involved with community radio before I came to WRGY a little over a year ago. Now it may sound strange but my career in radio started back in 1965 at Cambridge School of Broadcasting in Cambridge MA. Ending a year later when I found out how you might starve waiting for that big break when someone heard your voice and decided that you might be good for their station ratings. I should also mention that during this time I was involved with several garage bands, as they were called back then, by the names of “The Van dells” and “The Bourbons” and finally a group called “The Cape Cod Minstrels” which had professional singers and did standards and Christy Minstrels tunes.
