Q&A with Lou
Growing up: I was born and grew up in Pittsburgh, PA. I’m the middle kid in a family of seven. I have 5 sisters and a brother.
Getting into radio: When I was a kid, before our vacation trips I would ask my sisters, brother and parents their favorite songs. Then I would record them onto a cassette and made it a request show and play it during our trip. I loved it and had the radio bug. (and still do)
Career highlights: I was hired as the first morning show host of a brand new radio station that went on the air in February 2000.
Funny radio story: I was out of radio for about 7 years. Then I got a part time weekend air shift. My parents paid me a surprise visit that weekend. My mom wanted to get some cassettes to record the show. I told her, it’s been years since I’ve done this, that I’ll make a lot of mistakes and mess up. She said I know, that’s what I want to record.
