Since it’s inception, Jerry has interviewed B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Gregg Allman, Mick Fleetwood, John Mayall & Hubert Sumlin! Warren Haynes and The Derek Trucks Band have played “live” in the Graveyard Blues studio!
Jerry’s on-air radio career began in 1990 at WNYG 1440AM, an oldies station in Babylon, NY. That gig led to on-air positions at Magic 94.3 in Melville, NY, Beach 104.7 in Amagansett, NY and WBAB in Babylon, NY, where Jerry enjoyed 9+ years at “Long Island’s Home of Rock-n-Roll!” Graveyard Blues started in January of 1998 on WBAB’s sister station 1240AM WGBB. It held the Thursday at 10PM time slot until the station was eventually sold. In May of 2002, Graveyard Blues found a new home, on Sunday night, at WRCN! Graveyard Blues is currently in it’s 12th year of broadcasting on 103.9 WRCN! In June of 2012, Jerry was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame!
Each month, Graveyard Blues brings you ”Borrowed & Blue on Graveyard Blues” where we feature a classic blues tune performed by two different and usually diverse artists! “Blues News” is another monthly feature that keeps you up to date with what’s going on in the world of blues!
