|Program Director/Operations Manager
Barry has been a New York City Metro area veteran broadcaster and programming pro since 1970. Currently, he is Assistant Director of Telecommunications at the Metropolitan Campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University. In that capacity he is the Program Director / Operations Manager of WFDU-FM. Barry can also teach a thing or two - having been a professor of radio and TV broadcasting, public speaking and drama for 15 years. As a 1974 FDU graduate, Barry takes particular pride in guiding the radio station he helped establish in 1971.
Barry cut his broadcast teeth at WXLO - 99X, answering the request line. But his obvious talent at engineering, production, and on-air talk had management making a request of their own. He soon joined the professional ranks - and didn't leave New York for nearly two decades. The list of stations that benefited from his expertise include: WXLO-99X, WOR-AM, The RKO Radio Networks, WNBC-AM, and the the CBS Radio-Radio Network.
Barry also hosts WFDU's The Beatles: 2 by 4 on Sunday's from 11am to 1pm.
Office Manager/Web Manager/Underwriting Coord.
Wendee's radio career started in Northern CA. at about 8 yrs old with her little plastic AM radio. She would listen and think "There sure are a lot of musicians at that radio station!"
In high school at 16, Wendee noticed a door that really cool people went in & out of, and there was music! After qualifying for her Third Class Operators permit she went thru that door and became Operations Manager of KVHS 90.5 FM as well as a DJ, Music Director, Production Engineer and part of the studio construction crew.
Over a decade later, Wendee landed two radio gigs in NYC: 1010 WINS covering the overnight production and WNEW 102.7 as the Board Operator for the Carol Miller show and the syndicated shows.
In 2008 Wendee started her career at WFDU as Office Mgr., Web Mistress, Underwriting Coord. and she also fills in as DJ for Across the Trax.
