A long, long time ago, I became aware of radio while listening to my favorite Top 40 hits on WABC, WIBG and WFIL while living in Philadelphia and later in Feasterville, Pennsylvania. As a music major at Bucks County Community College, I started hanging around the college radio station, WTYL, helping with logs and broadcasting the news. That's when my life changed – I met Joe Reilly – one of the D.J.'s on the station! I became his biggest fan and have spent the rest of my life following him from town- to- town and up and down the dial.
In 2001, we returned to Pennsylvania and celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary one week before we signed on our first radio child, News Radio 930 WHLM. We spent years working toward this dream of owning our own station and then in 2006, the opportunity to purchase (adopt) 103.5 FM presented itself. Believe me, if I didn't think that Joe Reilly knew what he was doing I'd be concerned, but his track record speaks for itself. It's been a lot of fun and we've truly been blessed with a beautiful community to live in as well as a wonderful group of co-workers who also believe in Joe Reilly's dream.
As Co-owner/Business Manager of both radio stations, my life is very busy and interesting. I am a member of the Bloomsburg Bi-Centennial Choir and the Bloomsburg Christian Church. My greatest claim-to-fame is that I am the proud mother of David Joseph (DJ) Reilly, 19, a student at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts where he is majoring in percussion performance and audio recording. He attained the rank of Eagle Scout in 2006 and has big dreams for a future in music.
The support of friends over the years continues to be one of our greatest treasures. We have enjoyed having many visitors check out our stations and “the only town in Pennsylvania – Bloomsburg.”
