WUMB November Program Guide

One Year At A Time Debuts in March on WUMB

For my first decade in Boston radio I was known as “Morning Guy Tai,” a name that stuck with me even after I left WFNX in 1997.  Since then I was a talk host on WRKO and WTKK, and presented music on WZLX and WROR.  In the ensuing years I turned my attention to voiceovers, and I am a regular contributor to narrations, commercials on TV and radio, and industrial work as well.

My mother was a music teacher who played the piano in our house every day, and my father had spent some time at Birdland, the famous jazz nightclub.  I was exposed to a wide variety of music from a young age, and grew up in a house with a basement that became jam central when inexpensive instruments from Sears arrived one Christmas.  Radio and television served as my source for material, and I came up in the turbulent sixties and evolving seventies.

The new program One Year At A Time will give listeners a chance to hear a slice of music in one place that can either bring back memories they have, or ignite an interest in music that was released before they were born.  I look forward to curating this show, and we will begin with 1964 and move chronologically forward each month.  For ages WUMB has been my favorite music station and I am so pleased to join such a wonderful team.
