Don Geronimo back on the air in Ocean City, MD?

Very interesting news from yesterday (from, whose sole contributor has been inching towards being thisclose to the second coming of Carl R. Grossman with his recent Doni G sightings):

Geronimo To Do OC Radio Gig -6/24 - First on DCRTV. Starting 7/7, former WJFK-FM afternooner Don Geronimo (right) will be working for eclectic rocker WOCM (98.1 FM), Ocean 98, in Ocean City each weekday from 1 PM to 3 PM doing "an up-tempo show" with "hit music that doesn't suck" from the 1970s and 1980s. There'll be jingles and he'll "talk up" the records. Geronimo, a three-decade radio vet who retired as half of "The Don And Mike Show" in April, has been spending the time since at his Ocean City beachfront condo, we hear. Geronimo guested this morning on WOCM's "Bulldog In The Morning Show" to discuss his future radio plans. The audio of that interview is available via wocmdg.mp3. When Geronimo left CBS-owned WJFK-FM, he was told that his non-compete contract allows him to work in markets where there are no CBS radio stations, a la Ocean City. Geronimo, a former "top 40" DJ at WPGC, is a big fan of classic pop tunes.....

To hear the words come from the man's mouth could not bring a bigger smile to my face. I've been living off of the D&M Time Mahcheen and American Top 40 reruns ever since I heard that Don was retiring. To hear that Geronimo will be bringing back the same style and patter that made him a DJ Legend is like getting Christmas in July. To this listener, July 7th can't make it here fast enough.
