Apple Bites

apple bites for web copyVince Santarelli has, for about 20 years, been keeping track of the comings and goings, anniversaries, day parts and ratings of people who worked behind microphones. We’re pleased to add a link (below left) to his website, “Apple Bites,” because we are in the remembering busines, too, and Vince’s charts are filled with names we know and know of, and of events we experienced, or know to be important markers in radio history. Thanks to Bill Diehl for brining these sites together and to Vince Santarelli for working the field faithfully for so many seasons.
