The R&R Reunion -- Awesome!
November 8, 2010 at 3:58 AM (PT)
Around 175 former staffers of RADIO & RECORDS gathered for a reunion on SATURDAY (11/6), and among some of the notable ex-R&R folks there to party, were a number of ALL ACCESS staffers: President/Publisher JOEL DENVER, Alternative Editor/Sr. Editor SHAWN ALEXANDER, Sales Mgr. & Dir./Marketing MATT PARVIS, Hot AC Editor MARK STRICKLAND, Account Exec. PAUL COLBERT and Triple A Editor JOHN SCHOENBERGER.
Lots of memorabilia was there to be had for the taking with some of the cooler art pieces being auctioned off to the partiers with the proceeds benefiting ABBY ANIMAL SANCTUARY, and FETCH A DOG A HOME.
DENVER, who was formerly R&R's CHR/Top 40 Editor, said, "This was truly an amazing gathering of great friends and memories. Truly wonderful seeing all of my fellow ex-CHR/Top 40 Editors, JOHN LEADER, TONY NOVIA and KEVIN CARTER ... but most importantly the first CHR/Top 40 Editor was there ... BOB WILSON the visionary who created R&R along with BOB KARDASHIAN.
"Without BOB, R&R would have never existed and become the force it eventually became, and I would not have learned that skills to have assembled my staff to start ALLACCESS.COM. So while this was a celebration of everyone's hard work and creativity for the 36 years of R&R's existence, it was also a grand tribute to BOB WILSON. Thank you BOB! And, thank you NANCY HOFF and JACQUELINE LENNON for putting it all together."
