Bob Goodman is a NYC native living in Southern California. He started his broadcast career during the Golden Age of FM and continues to share his passion for great tunes with Whole ‘Nuther Thing as his vehicle..
I was born to share my passion and knowledge of music and spin records. I’ve had 2 distinct broadcasting careers with a 20 year break in between. I’ve been a student of Radio Broadcasting since I was old enough to carry around a Transistor Radio in my pocket and often went to sleep with an earphone stuck in one of my ears decades before iPods made it fashionable. My on air career started with the Campus Radio Station of Hunter College in NYC where I was General Manager and later the Coordinating Director of Network Programming and co- founder of the City University Radio Network. My professional career began on Long Island at WRCN where I became Music Director. I eventually moved to Los Angeles doing overnights at KSRF FM in Santa Monica before moving back to New York and WLIX AM in Islip. My last on air gig before my hiatus was with “The Quadfather” WYSP FM in Philadelphia, leaving because the consultants were slowly removing any artistic freedom we had picking our own music and connecting with our audience.
As the Millennium approached I made a decision to return to my first love, at least on a part time basis, Radio. I received an air shift on usually Jazz formatted KSBR FM in Orange County, California initiating the concept of “Whole ‘Nuther Thing”, essentially a mosaic of music without any boundaries. With my knowledge of and passion for music of all genres, it was easy for me to put together music from disparate genres and blend them into cohesive and flowing sets. Unlike my first career, I now have the luxury of painting from a palette of 75 plus years. If you have a favorite “Lost Tune” there is a good chance you will hear it during Whole ‘Nuther Thing. If not, then contact me and I will get it on for you. As Duke Ellington once remarked “There’s Only 2 Kinds of Music, Good Music and Bad Music”. I prefer the former.
