Denis Reidy

"Listen Twice as much as you Speak"

I logged roughly 160 hours interviewing our production director Denis Reidy for this bio. (He held me captive in his office trying to make sure I did him justice.) Reviewing my 90 pages of notes, I see this will be an impossibility. I'd need an entire book for Denis.

I can tell you he's a NY native and proud of his Irish heritage. He's been in radio for 34 years, at some lengendary radio stations 99X New York, WSGA Savannah Ga. WRNL Richmond and WCMS when it was country. He loves the opportunity radio gives him to connect with people who otherwise might not have anyone else to talk to. Denis has many claims to fame, one of them being he was the first contestant on the 10,000 dollar Pyramid! (It was rigged! He actually WON that first round.) He was also at the famous Peter Frampton "LIVE!" concert. In a prescient moment Denis told his date, "You never know. He could be big someday."

Denis is strung a little tighter than your average DJ. That results in refreshing radio. When Denis is on the air, believe me, you won't be hearing the same old thing. You may hear some free association, you may hear about enrollment at a new Roman Gladiator School, or you may get the meaning of life. (Denis says it's a Bran Muffin.) The man is creative. Don't be surprised if you see him on the big screen someday- he's interested in the acting process.

Denis is deep down, to the CORE nice and has a sensitive side he doesn't want you to know about. 17 years ago he met a good woman named Donna and she's been a good influence on him. He gets the rest of his smile from talking to his kids in Florida, Sharese and Elias Reidy. Elias was lead guitarist for the rock band "Red Jumpsuit Apparatus" his daughter has three children Kaden , Kaylee, and Zander she'll embark on her "music career" after the kids grow up a little.

One of the things I love most about Denis is that he spends the majority of his day trying to make me laugh. He loves making people laugh and that makes working with him FUN. Thanks D.
