GOOD TIME OLDIES
Our DJ's bring you the golden era of pop, rock, and soul: hit music of the '60s and '70s.
IN THE MORNING
Listen to Bruce Palmer in the mornings from 5a-1p on 97.5 GTO! Bruce has over 30 years in the radio business starting in suburban Philadelphia. Now with a personal music collection of more than 60,000 tunes, a garage packed with a dozen antique cars, and loving radio more than ever, he’s living the dream. When Bruce’s not on the air, he’s probably playing with his dogs & cats, sitting back to take in a baseball game, spending time with his wife and two daughters, or most likely, out in the garage under a hood. You see, he really is radio’s original “car guy.”
Cheree started her radio career in the sunshine state of Florida 15 years ago. Since then she has graced the airwaves coast-to-coast and in between. Cheree also has enjoyed figure skating on-and-off competitively all her life, and she owns two horses that she rides & shows in competitions in English Pleasure and jumping. She’s a die-hard NFL fan, one of the biggest animal enthusiasts, and loves all kinds of music. Cheree’s also known as “Super Aunt” with two nieces that are simply beautiful inside-and-out.
Ric has been in radio for 38 years. He started his music “education” by singing do-wop on the street corners of Brooklyn in the early 60’s. He furthered his “education” as he worked for one of the largest record stores in New York City witnessing one of the greatest eras in music, the 60’s. He later started his own band and got signed to Mercury records. These days he’s married and has one son who seems to be taking up where Ric left off as a music major and multi-instrumentalist. Ric also owns a recording business where, at times, he and his son frequently hang out and jam. Aside from radio and music, Ric and his wife also trained in the art of Shaolin-Kempo Karate. Both are martial arts instructors and they both hold the rank of Black Belt.

We opened doors around 6:30pm to let the evening of fun begin. Nancy and Amy covered the welcome table working hard to get everyone through the line quickly. Once settled in, our emcees for the night, Walt Lindala and Adam Carpenter took the mics. Welcoming everyone to another great giveaway party, the guys thanked all of the evening’s sponsors. With introductions out of the way we moved to giving out some door prizes. Our Sponsors provided great door prizes like Hudson’s Classic Grill certificates and camo Cub Cadet ball caps from Four Seasons Small Engine. The audience couldn’t get enough of the door prizes – who doesn’t like free stuff, right?
Thanks to all of our sponsors for supporting this event and giving us some awesome door prizes to giveaway.
With the quota for free prizes given out, it was time to fill up those bellies. Breaking for dinner, Ryan Ranguette released tables for a delicious dinner from Mama Russo’s. Guests chowed down on cudighi bites, lasagna, and famous homemade salads served by the local catering company. In between bites we handed out the last of the door prizes including WRUP 98.3 t-shirts and go bags from Biolife.
While the party is about having a good time and hanging out with friends, it was time to get to the real reason we were all there. Walt Lindala and Mike Plourde stepped up to the mic to drawn our seven finalists. Drawing the suspense just a little longer, Major Discount took over to thank our sponsors one more time and people of the community for coming out tonight. Number by number cheers broken out from the crowd with each number read. Each finalist moved to the front of the room to select their station envelope. Once all the finalists were ready, Major Discount delivered the countdown signaling our winners to tear open the envelopes all at once.
Dennis Sippola opened his enveloped to find that he would be one with a brand new storage building! While there can only be one major prize winner, none of our finalist walked away empty handed. Liz Hangas received a $100 gift basket from Super One Foods with Mary Whales receiving another. Kevin Stank won a brand new socket wrench kit from Advance Auto Parts from. Brett Nance and Allison Coss went home with Gold Star Service Contracts from Swick Home Services with our last winner leaving with a STIHL leaf blower from Four Seasons.
