George Manolias – Staff Alumni

It was great to see your first WSDP newsletter appear in my mailbox. Like many former staffers, I enjoyed my time at the station. Your newsletter brought back some memories, especially as I read some of the stories. I think you’re onto a good thing—please keep it up! I worked for only one year at the station – my senior year. Also, I wasn’t a DJ. Instead I chose to cover sports and news. My “beat” was wrestling in the fall/winter, and girls soccer in the spring. I was fortunate enough to do some halftime shows during Salem basketball games, even as the team advanced through the playoffs. But my best memory was actually from a baseball broadcast. WJR’s Paul Carey came out to announce an inning of the Canton/Salem game. With the broadcast booth located atop the home dugout, his voice carried onto the field very well, making it even more captivating. The ball players were shocked to hear such a famous voice calling their names. Anyway, although I was only there for a year, it was a very fun time. Most of all it was instructive. Even though I never went into broadcasting, I can’t tell you how many times, while working in the business world I’ve had to think on my feet, or speak to an audience without notes. To be able to do that, I tip my hat to WSDP. Nothing like live radio for that kind of training. Best regards, George Manolias, Salem
