Hi I’m John - known on Buffalo radio for some 47 years as JP.
I’ve worked at Buffalo radio stations WYSL, WPhD, WBYR, and WGRF.
I’ve been a Program Director at 3 of those stations, and Music Director at four of them.
I’m born and raised in Buffalo, originally from Buffalo’s historic West Side. These days I reside in East Amherst.
I’m a sports fan, including the Buffalo Bills of course. I was the Public Address announcer for the Bills for 11 years. Just missed the Josh years, so needless to say I PA’d several losing games. Thankfully it’s a different story these days.
I also am a fan of the New York Yankees and horse racing. I have owned and still own a few race horses.
I have 2 amazing parents whom I look after, they’re both 93. I’m blessed.
My love and passion for music started on February 9th 1964, my “Big Bang Moment” when I along with 73 million Americans watched those kids from Liverpool on The Ed Sullivan Show. They’ve been my one true love affair to this day - Paul McCartney is my idol.
As I’ve stated, I have been in radio along time. Part of my history in this business is tutoring young people who aspire to get into our great business. In 1982 I tutored a young man who showed a bunch of promise, my intuition told me this kid is going to do big things some day. That kid, is Buddy Shula the owner of this great radio station I’m now proud to be a part of. Please join me weekday mornings at 9 as we’ll spend some time together while I play you the coolest songs ever made.
