Thanks to a couple of radio guys, current and former members of the Quad-Cities radio media and their friends now have their own site on Facebook. TV folks are welcome, too.
Quad Cities On Air is a place to share Q-C media-related photos, videos, audio clips and stories.
The site was started Dec. 4 by Terry James and Shawn Geyssens.
James last worked in the Q-C in 2006 as a newsman at WOC and the other Q-C Radio Group stations. He is now in Lincoln, Neb., where he is the Nebraska Radio Network’s news director.
Geyssens, who no longer works in the media, is a former deejay at Power 98.9 and KUUL.
“We thought there needed to be a place where people who have gotten out of the business — or are still in it — could talk about the good old days and post their video, audio and pictures,” said James. “We have gotten our hands on some old air checks that radio geeks like us will love. We really need, and hope people will submit, items and join in discussions about the good old days.”
James said the site is not a place to bellyache.
“We don’t want to complain about what radio has become but celebrate what it used to be.”
