I heard the news 30 years of “Yesterdays” ago. And, “oh boy” was it stunning.
I didn’t hear it when it first broke. I was sleepy-bye. But, when my radio-alarm clock went off at about 5:20 in the morning, WPLJ-FM New York City newscaster, Shelly Sonstein broke the news to me. Imagine

My friends were stunned and saddened. But, I was still a kid. I didn’t quite get the enormous influence of this one man on generations. Well, do give a gal a chance to grow up. I think, 30 years later, that I get it.


Hello world!

Welcome to the WordPress account for Rita F. Rich, of suburban Washington, D.C.

I’m an independent contractor in public affairs, media relations and in most things having to do with radio.  Because I used to be on-air-staff, I usually have a comment about things happening in the media industry; in the news; and those who wish to be in the news.

Stay tuned!
