A quick follow-up on the Geronimo comeback

Well, yesterday's news seems to be official as one more media outlet has confirmed the return of radio legend Don Geronimo. Here are a couple quick quotes from Tuesday's Delaware Online news article on Geronimo's quitting his retirement so he can come back to the national airwaves (albeit through a station in Ocean City, MD):

The radio personality and former co-host of the nationally syndicated “Don & Mike Show” will return to his record-spinning roots with Ocean City’s 98.1 WOCM-FM, according to station manager and morning show host David “Bulldog” Rothner.

“I saw some article that he was moving in this direction,” Bulldog said. “What he said was, he loves radio — the guy’s passionate about radio — but he’s sick and tired of the corporate (nonsense). I read the article, and the only thing missing from what he was looking to do was our call letters, man.

“We have an independent radio station that will allow him to do stuff without a bunch of corporate red tape watching over him. I called him up, and I said, let’s see if we can make something work out. So when we got together, we talked about this thing, and it was a perfect fit.”

Bulldog said “Don Geronimo’s Rockin’ Soul Show” will run 1-3 p.m. weekdays on WOCM, starting July 7....“He’ll bring in his own music, stuff that fits in with our station,” Bulldog said. “He can bring his CD players in, play some good music and go back to the way it used to be — that’s what he likes about it. The guy’s got 35 years of radio experience. He can certainly bring something to the station.”
