Rider College in the 1980’s

Recently on our ‘Woo-Hoo Wednesday’ Radio Show on the internet radio station, ‘Radio Once More’, we were discussing the end of the school year and about school graduations.  I shared another one of my Rider College stories, (to go along with our Pat’s Cheese Steaks and Curly Shuffle stories).

Holmsey – Rider College Class of 1987

I graduated in 1987 from Rider College with a degree in Accounting, however, I almost didn’t make it, and….it wasn’t entirely my fault!!!!!

Helen & Johnny - Comic Strips t

Hello All!!!!! Helen and I are proud to host another installment of “An Evening of Old Time Radio” at the Daily Grind Coffee Shop at 48 High Street in beautiful, downtown Mount Holly, New Jersey. If any of you wonderful folks happen to be in the vicinity of Mount Holly, New Jersey on Friday, June 24th (6:30PM to 9PM), we cordially invite you to stop by and enjoy a tasty beverage as we present “Comic Strips to Radio”. We will be presenting three shows from the Golden Age of Radio that came from the world of comics.

Stay for 1, 2, or all 3 shows!!!!  As a special bonus, we are also planning to broadcast the presentation live on www.RadioOnceMore.com the following Wednesday, June 29th at 9PM. This gives you two chances to catch our “Comic Strips to Radio” presentation live, once at the Daily Grind Coffee Shop, and once on “Radio Once More”.  We have some great shows, music, and treats lined up for this special Friday evening event. Also, rumor has it that there will be a few Give-a-Ways!!!!

Stop by and try something a little different and experience how we were entertained back in the 1930′s, 40′s, and 50′s before television. All you need are your ears and your imagination!!!! Arrive early if you plan on attending, it is a cozy coffee shop with limited seating. Helen and I sincerely hope to see you Friday evening at the Daily Grind Coffee Shop on June 24th at 6:30PM and on “Radio Once More” on Wednesday evening June 29th at 9PM!!!!!!  Woo-Hoo!!!!
