About Scott Shaw
I love the music that put the 80's and MTV on the map, especially the New Wave and everything that led to the New Wave and everything that was born out of the New Wave. It all made the 80's a fun place to be.
Have been loving radio since I jumped in with both feet at my college radio station, WCCB, Clarion's Hot Rock. It no longer exists, but there are still CCB'rs working at radio stations across the entire country. Was lucky enough to learn from Charlie Quinn and Jay Beau Jones at WHTT in Boston, working for them in programming. From there, it was off to WINK 104 in Harrisburg, PA for 10 great and fun years. It was weekends, then overnights, then nights and then 8 years as Music Director/Midday DJ. Got to play the greatest music out there and was lucky enough to see and meet many of my favorite bands and artists, ever. For the next 15 years (or so), I had a blast working with Jed Donahue as co-host/producer, rambling on about one of my other loves in life: Sports, w/plenty TV and Movie Stuff mixed in.
There were a couple of detours along the way. I worked on some independent films in Hollywood in the middle of the last decade. Managed to get some crew credits on IMDB. Woo Hoo! I also had a fun couple of years working for the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum. When the Isles announced their move to Brooklyn, I planned my trip back to Hollywood, but this time the plan was to get the Retro Blast off the ground and on a radio station near year you.
