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.
