April 8, 2013 at 4:09 AM (PT)
Most of us haven't done anything for 40 years -- except breathe! So imagine what it's like to be on the airwaves of the world's biggest market for four decades? If you can, then you know what it feels like to be the legendary PAT ST. JOHN, who celebrates this amazing anniversary TOMORROW (4/9).
Congratulations from everyone at ALL ACCESS.
Currently at CBS RADIO Classic Hits WCBS-F and SIRIUSXM, ST. JOHN began his BIG APPLE career APRIL 9th, 1973 on WPLJ doing 6-10p. He did afternoons in JANUARY of 1974 and left AUGUST 28th 1987 to join WNEW-FM for weekends, then middays.
In 1992 ST. JOHN earned his PD stripes retaining middays at WNEW-FM. In early 1997, ST. JOHN shifted to afternoons, later moving back to middays, and finally called it a day, leaving WNEW-FM on JUNE 12th, 1998. He joined CD RADIO (now SIRIUSXM), and in 2003 grabbed weekends at WCBS-FM, eventually moving to WAXQ. Finally, in 2007 he rejoined WCBS-FM.
