How I spent my Summer Vacation.

Eric Weiss of The Weiss Agency offered his Cabo San Lucas condo to several of the McVay Team. The huts on the beach house massage tables and the waves provided the "white noise" for total relaxation. The view from the 1st story balcony is spectacular. The condo is for rent. We highly recommend visiting As they say in Cabo .... "Another margarita please."

You don't hear of this often. One consultant in the total 25 years of the stations life!

Mike McVay recently visited Fort Wayne and celebrated 25 years as consultant to Sarkes-Tarzian radio, owner of WAJI - WLDE, with General Manager Lee Tobin. When McVay first joined the station, Sarkes Tarzian President/Radio Geoff Vargo was the General Manager and Tobin joined as PD shortly after McVay started at the station. McVay's hair was darker, there was no pot belly and the dark circles under his eyes in those days were from working late hours. Today the circles are .... well .... "just because."
