I grew up outside of Philadelphia and graduated from Upper Darby High School in 1974. It was a great year, because the Flyers, who I had followed since they came into the NHL seven years earlier, won their first Stanley Cup.
I moved back to Berks County (I lived here in the early ‘80’s) in 1997, and can’t believe I’ve worked at WEEU-or anywhere else for that matter- for this long!
Now I enjoy going to Reading Royals and Fightin’ Phils games. (It’s a lot cheaper, and so am I)
I also enjoy fishing, both salt water and freshwater, although it’s been many years since I fished in fresh water.
