About Ron Raymond, Jr.

duran duRON 8.20.15

The short version: 48 going on 49.  80s enthusiast.  Apolitical if I can help it.  Dog and cat lover.  A fan of music, movies, some TV, bacon, cereal, local sports teams, the ocean, writing, dancing, life, love, the idea of happily ever after and most things retro.  Ask anyone.

A longer version: I was born in Bar Harbor, Maine, spent a good chunk of my life between Portland, Maine and Winslow, Maine and have loved the 80s since 1979; you can figure the math out on that one 😉

For 10 years, I was Music Director for WMPG, where I got to meet and/or interview some of my 80s heroes and heroines, such as Rob and Eric of The Hooters, Dave Wakeling of The English Beat, Elvis Costello, Aimee Mann of ’til Tuesday, Colin Hay of Men at Work, Peter Murphy of Bauhaus, and the incomparable Cyndi Lauper.

STUCK IN THE 80s has been a Sunday night staple on WMPG for 20 years (with many thanks to my regular guests hosts DJ HOPE and DJ SHAWN EMERICK!!)!  It’s been an amazing time.  I started the show at 29, and I will end the show on my 50th birthday on February 12, 2017.  It’ll be cathartic.  Just feels right.

And hey – the show’s not over yet, so stay tuned to what will be THE BEST year yet for STUCK IN THE 80s!! Thank you so much for your support over the years – it’s not forgotten! Until next time, take care, be good and I’ll catch you on the flip side!!
