Tom Donahue

Tom started his Buffalo career in the mid-70s at WGR. After a long run at 550 AM, he went on to host mornings and serve as Program Director at WNUC, before landing in the midday shift at WHTT. His “Original Saturday Night All-Request Oldies Show” became one of the most popular weekend shows in Buffalo radio history. Tom moved to news at KB Radio 1520 when it returned to music in 2003, and also anchored at WLKK. 'The Professor' is just as well-known for mentoring several generations of future broadcasters at Buffalo State College.

Gail Ann Huber

My family consists of my 18-year old twins, Anthony and Maria. They are both in college right now...Anthony at ECC and Maria at Fredonia. They are the center of my universe in every way. Besides the twins, I have a very special little guy who keeps me company every day and his name is Finnick. Finnick is my little Peek-a-Pom. He has the Pekingese face and the Pom tail and the personality of a sweet little angel.

We've been living in Hamburg for about 4 years now, and I've fallen in love with the village. There is a quaint spirit about the area, where you feel comfortable and at ease. There are a ton of things you can walk to and the village always looks season-friendly.

I love to decorate and garden......those are my two major hobbies! Speaking of hobbies, you'll probably find me at Hobby Lobby because I'm always looking for a project. I have several gardens that are filled with flowers and veggies. Love to grow things....hate to weed.

My guilty pleasures include expensive candles (using coupons of course). I love to have fires in our fireplace in the winter and enjoy quiet time on my patio during the summer. Not thrilling to most but you learn in life that simple .

My very first job was as a lifeguard at an apartment complex swimming pool. That explains most of my age spots I suppose!

My start in radio was at WSPQ in Springville. I started working there before it went on the air, so most of what I did was paint, do field readings and practice....all for no pay until we eventually went of the air. I admit I was awful, but I got my feet wet and gained the desire to succeed.

I am the most proud of two thing in life: Anthony and Maria. They are a true blessing in every way. They have had their share of challenges in life (as most do), but they have shown resolve and resilience throughout everything. They are kind and polite and funny and fantastic. Who wouldn't be proud????

People may be surprised to know that I have grown up. Yes....I am now in my fifties and have not been frozen in time. Life marches on and I have a few more wrinkles and grey hair that I color more regularly these days.

My favorite vacation spot is Jamaica. I fell in love with the island the first time I visited and have longed to get back there someday.

As for restaurants...I really enjoy J.P Fitzgeralds in Hamburg. They have the best French Onion Soup on the planet. While driving my daughter to Fredonia, we stopped at Native Pride a few times and found out they are the most incredible sandwiches and breakfasts. As for my favorite cuisine, I love Mexican and a great local spot is El Canelo.

My favorite movie of all time is The Notebook. That's a great middle of the winter, box of tissues, ball your eyes out, be alone kind of movie. Don't freak out, but my favorite TV show is The Walking Dead! I don't know why but it really drew me in and now I can't stop watching it. Also....there is a series on PBS called Call the Midwife that I think many of you would enjoy.

There are a million causes to be passionate about, but several really capture my heart. I adore animals, so I support many of the local rescue organizations. The work they do is a labor of love and matching a human heart to an animal heart is powerful. My mom was taken too young recently of an aggressive form of Alzheimer's disease, so I am very supportive of the organizations that help both those inflicted with the malady and their caregivers.

What do I love about Buffalo? A whole bunch of things!!! The Sabres, The Bills, the lake, Shea's, the seasons, the scenery, the culture, the art, the newly-found pride and hope, but mostly...the people.

Buddy Shula and I have known each other for years, and I know we share the desire to turn back time when radio was fun and engaging. Let's face it....there are so many options for music out there, but radio is about more than that! Radio should represent the listener on all levels. It should be a balance of music and information and fun, and somewhere you feel happy. Buddy's vision is shared by many people in our industry. How lucky am I to be a part of this new family and new (old) way of broadcasting.

Tony Magoo

I started my radio career at WJJL in Niagara Falls in the fall of 1975. I worked though the Blizzard with a staff that included Joe Chille. In 1980 Harv Moore hired me to do weekends at WPhD. Hank Nevins gave me a job at Magic 102.5 in 1988, and then I moved to work at 103.3 The Fox in Buffalo and stayed there until 1993. I left Buffalo in the fall of 1995 and headed for Greenville SC to do afternoon drive for Ken Carson…he hired me at the Fox in Buffalo back in the early 90’s. Stayed there for five years. Then it was off to Nashville and the Big 98…WSIX to do middays. Huge country station. After a management change on all levels I moved to Knoxville, TN to do mornings at WIMZ. Two years later I was off to Detroit to do mornings at the CBS country station there, WYCD. Another management shuffle forced me to look elsewhere and I was off to WFBE, a country station in Flint Michigan. Loved it there…we were killing it until I came down with stage 4 head and neck cancer. I took a year and a half to heal. An old buddy of mine put me on in Detroit to fill in during the holidays…just to see if I could still do the job. My body went through a lot of changes when I got cancer. Within a month I was on my way to do afternoon drive at KZPS in Dallas. Another top to bottom management change two years later and I was almost going to head for TV. I was asked to host a TV show for motorcycle enthusiasts that looks a lot like what Norman Reedus is doing. Here’s the upside…I got to ride my Harley on the Pacific Coast Highway. It wasn’t picked up, so my next move was to head to north Mississippi to do mornings at a country station that we put on the air just south of Memphis. The economy took a dive and my friend lost his business, and I lost my job. The woman that loved me asked me to come and be with her, so I did. I have been doing some news, weather and traffic all up and down the eastern seaboard from my home, and then Buddy contacted me. Yes you can come home!

Danny Neaverth

I am the kid from Keppel Street....South Buffalo on the poorer side of the Buffalo River.

Marie....first girlfriend.....first wife. ....first for 58 yrs...Parents of Dan jr. Dave,Darren and Dean. We stopped after we found out what was causing it. If we had a fifth boy....would have been named Dopey. Disappointed aunts and others who carefully watch the calendars after a marriage. Dan Jr. didn't come along until two yrs later. The boys tell their Mother,very little. They and Marie agree; think I can't keep a secret.

We live in Orchard Park with other rich people. To seem more humble I always wear old clothes. We have no pets, but we do have a moat surrounding our home and fake security signs so no one steals all our money, which we keep in a box in the cupboard. My guilty pleasure is playing with my train layout in the basement. (Note) these are REAL TRAINS....not Lionel or American Flyer. Marie says the smoke and diesel fumes make her nauseous but I think it's me.

My first job was at Hengerers Dept store on Main Street. I worked as a stock boy in the candy dept. after school. Every day I would call up Uber and ride downtown to work. Believe it or not I really don't like candy......except Milky Way and peppermint patties which they didn't sell. After high school I attended The Curran Studios in Syracuse. Jack Curran was a Broadcast and vocal coach. When asked where I went to school I would always answer SYRACUSE (technically not a lie). I wanted to sound like I was smart like all those people who went there. As a matter of fact, I told WECK I went there.

I am not your average high school graduate. My first job.......WFRM.....Coudersport Pa. It sounds like a small town, but it's on all the local tv weather maps. Check it out. I am most proud of my family. Marie..the boys.....grandkids ....the best.

This might surprise you. I am an emergency room physician specializing in splinter removal and bandaging.

Favorite vacation spot.......Antarctica......and Moscow (Let the Investigations begin) Fave restaurant.....ilio DIPaolos. Love Bluebloods. Never watched Game of Thrones.......why would anyone watch a game show about toilets?

I am most passionate about World Peace. (I picked that up from watching contestants on beauty pageants.) Marie accepts no gifts...birthday, Christmas etc. Instead asks kids to donate to wounded Warriors. Well there has to be at least one sane person in this marriage.

What I like most about Buffalo? THE PEOPLE. Thats what everybody says when asked that. Truthfully there are at least three people that I don't my actual answer I LIKE THE PEOPLE except those three.

The bigger question WHY AM I AT WECK? Okay the truth.....Three chains own most of the Buffalo radio stations with the exception of a Country Station. I can't work there because my head is bigger than their ten gallon hats. Another chain is way too far from my house. Besides who wants to drive thru all those Amherst and State Police radar traps? The buzzing on my radar detector drives me crazy. Another chain is downtown. Did you ever try to park downtown? Why it costs $20 to park for a baseball game. The third chain is closer but those are the Bas#<*#% s that didn't renew my contract after 13 yrs.'s WECK...GREAT ENTHUSIASTIC OWNER....SUPER TALENTED STAFF...(with exception of me) MUSIC WITH LYRICS YOU CAN UNDERSTAND........AN ACTUAL NEWS DEPT.....AND........FREE PARKING.......Of all the people WECK has hired...........I am the only one I've never heard of.

Thank you.

DAN NEAVERTH SR.......NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH DAN NEAVERTH JR. who has a real important job. However, I am better looking.

Harv Moore

Harv was born and raised in the shadow of Yankee Stadium. He is a graduate of Boston University College of Liberal Arts. His passion from an early age was music and radio, and while in college he interned at a Boston radio station. Upon graduation he took a job at WFKY in Kentucky's capital city, Frankfort.

After a year at WFKY he was offered a job at WPGC in Washington D.C. to do mornings as Harv Moore 'The Boy Next Door'. He was onstage to introduce The Beatles at their very first concert in the U.S. at the Washington Coliseum. While at WPGC, Harv won many awards including Air Personality of The Year, and Program Director of The Year.

In 1975 Harv's boss at WPGC bought two radio stations in Buffalo (WPHD 103.3fm and WYSL 1400am), and asked Harv to move to Buffalo, to program both stations and host the morning show on WPGC. Bob Taylor was the midday DJ at WPHD, and Harv and Bob started doing a 'changeover routine' at 10am which became the talk-of-the-town. They decided to team up, and the result was the highly acclaimed Taylor & Moore Show. They created the mythical 'Land of Fa', which is talked about to this day.

Harv and his wife, Vicki have five children, and nine grandchildren.

Harv's hobbies include songwriting and record production. Some of his productions are featured on YouTube.

Bobby O

A native of Lackawanna, I grew up listening to the legends Danny Neaverth, Jackson Armstrong, George Hamburger and many others. Back when AM radio was playing the hits, at night time you had your choice of stations from around the country. I was a big fan of WABC New York. DJs like Dan Ingram and Cousin Brucie. Here in Buffalo we had the advantage of hearing stations from Toronto and Detroit. 1050 CHUM and CFTR 680. One of my favorites was CKLW AM 800. Even though they were in Windsor Canada, it was known as a Detroit radio station. As a student at Buffalo State College, I worked at the radio station where Byron Brown was a news anchor, and would announce the headlines on my show. That's when I also became a big fan of Harv Moore. In 1979, he was the first one to hire me for my very first radio gig at WYSL 1400 AM, where Buddy Shula was also beginning his radio career while still in high school! I ended up leaving and working in Philadelphia, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Long Island, Lubbock Texas and Rochester. Now I'm back here in Buffalo working with all the folks I knew back in the day. A true all-star cast. Catch Me 3 - 7 weekdays here and we can reminisce about the good times and play your favorite Oldies!

Moon 'Doggie' Rivers

The other night I heard our WECK big voice guy call me a "radio legend". In a sense, I guess I am, but not like the other personalities here at WECK.

They, are real radio legends. Me ? I'm more of a legendary radio "listener"

And I go way back. Back to when I listened to Danny Neavereth, Tommy Shannon, Joey Reynolds and all those great voices at KB, I remember grumpy old Clint Buelman, The Hound and Shane Brother Shane, plus out of town personalities like the guys at Chum

in Toronto and at night, talented voices from Chicago and New York City...

Those , were the voices of legend !

They created an art form , those "audio equestrians", riding their vinyl steed across our pop-rockin' stream of

consciousness .. and their horse had a name, it was called, "The sound of the day", the pulse of a generation,

these, "audio equestrians" , riding bareback on the airwaves...

But me, I am not one of them. I am no legend.

I am just a humble shepherd of gentle souls

In the night

On the radio

Just trying to bring some peace to your mind and some great oldies music, to your ears.

I hope you join me weeknights at 7

And..... shine on, Drifter

Mike Jacobs

From a very young age I've always known I wanted to be a Disc Jockey. I can remember when I was at 8 years old , all I wanted for my Birthday was a Mr. Microphone.

As I was growing up , listening to the radio was a constant for me. WKBW, WGR55, WBEN in the 70's. As I grew into my teenage years I was glued to the FM dial for hours tuned into ROCK 102, WPHD & WNYS.

In high school at Frontier Central , I was the morning announcer reciting the Pledge of Allegiance & was president of the Broadcasting Club, and DJ'd a daily in house radio show for my fellow students. In 11th grade I was proud to be accepted into a HS internship program with WECK.

My first real DJ job was at Hamburg Roller Rink. As I started my career it brought me to many places, DJ'ing weddings, night clubs & parties. In 1996 I was fortunate to land my first radio position at WSPQ in Springville. From there my career brought me to many powerhouse stations in Buffalo-KISS 98.5, WKBW, WYRK, WEDG, and WHTT.

It is truly an honor to be on Buffalo's Very Own WECK, giving back to the community with great music, information & personality.

Glenn Topolski

Growing up I found radio to be fascinating. I remember many times recording the radio on tape and then playing back the song as I talked before and after it. I admired all those that I heard on the radio and always said, “that’s going to be me someday”!

I began in radio as an intern and worked my way up. I was determined that when I went into my internship that I was not leaving the radio station without a job. Within the first three months, I was earning a paycheck while working as a board operator at Star 102.5 and AM stations here in Buffalo including WWKB, WBEN and WGR. Later that year I was promoted to morning show producer. Over the next 16 years I learned so much about radio as I was on the air and I worked behind the scenes. Other stops along the way included top radio stations in Buffalo, Olean and Springville. I enjoy being on the air but my true passion is programming and working with the music. I also enjoy doing voice-overs and radio production.

When I am not on the air you will find me in my hometown of North Tonawanda. Spending time with my wife and two children is what I like to do in my spare time. Coaching T-Ball, watching the Bills and Sabres and exploring new restaurants/places in Buffalo is what I like to do in my spare time.

Thank you for spending time with us on WECK! We’re glad you’re here. Our goal is to provide unbiased, no opinion news delivered by trusted and well-known Buffalo voices while also providing you with the biggest and the best music library in Buffalo. This is also known as the WECK Way!

Broadcasting is my life. I remember, as a kid using a cassette tape recorder and doing play by play for make believe football and hockey games; and of course the Buffalo team won !!

I started in radio in May 1979 while earning a bachelor's degree at Medaille College. Ramblin' Lou Schriver gave me my first job at WXRL. After working at WXRL from 1979 – 1982, I went to a new station called WUWU 107.7FM. After a few months the station owner Dr. Ron Chmiel asked if I would do a Polka show. I said yes, while doing the show one Sunday morning, I thought of "Big" Steve and told Chmiel about him.

Steve and I worked hand in hand, Steve did the on - air; I did the advertising sales and filled in for him on the air. In 1986 WUWU FM was sold, we formed our own company, and bought time Sunday mornings on WBTF 101.7FM and Monday – Saturday on WHLD 1270AM, since then Western New York has had Polka music on the radio seven days a week. In 1992, the Sunday show moved to WECK 1230AM. In 1999, Steve passed away. I continued the program – calling it "Drive Time Polkas".

In 2006, WHLD's management changed and so did the format. I was told to leave. I called Ramblin' Lou and after 25 years, I was back at WXRL 1300AM from 5 - 7pm where I'm still heard today, as well as Sunday mornings on WECK 1230AM from 8 - 11am. My company is: R.J.D. Media, Inc., and I'm one of the few people that sells advertising and plays polka music for living.
