    For those not in the know, legendary NY DJ Vin Scelsa's show "Idiot's Delight" come to and end this week.
    He use to work on KROC w/ Howard, so I don't know why he hasn't mentioned this yet. (Although at a past
    birthday show on E!, he had some other jocks from the station on, and they said at that time he hated Howard. But
    he too has been known to change his mind.) Howard did mention the Pat St. John retirement (after and article was written
    in the NYDailynews). But you can hear the show on The Loft tonight 8pm to 12am, and live on Wed and Thurs 12noon
    to 2pm. Worth a listen if you never have heard before. Started 47yrs ago and changed the biz for the better. (For a
    short time anyway.) Also had an influence on Howard. (BTW, Pat St. John is on 60's at 6 1 to 5pm. ISDN line, just not
    local anymore.)

    One of the pioneers of free-form FM, Vin Scelsa, recently announced during his "Vin Scelsa Idiot's Delight" weekly program on WFUV (90.7) that he will do his final show from 8 to 10 a.m. May 2 (his final satellite program on Siri-usXM's "The Loft" channel will be on April 30).

    "I am incredibly lucky to have spent my entire radio career doing exactly what I've wanted," Scelsa said in a statement.

    Scelsa's nearly five-decade career began at WFMU-FM (91.1) in East Orange in November 1967, and has included stints at WBAI-FM (99.5), WABC-FM (now WPLJ) (95.5), WLIR-FM (92.7), WNEW-FM (102.7), WXRK-FM (92.3) where he began calling his program "Vin Scelsa's Idiot's Delight." back to WNEW and finally WFUV in 2001.

    Scelsa says that he plans to do some writing and other projects with his daughter, author Kate Scelsa (whose debut young-adult novel, "Fans of the Impossible Life,' will be published in September by HarperCollins).

    As a send-off, a "Fare Thee Well Concert" will take place on June 8 at City Winery, Manhattan. Details of the event at will be announced shortly. Listeners will be able to obtain tickets to the concert it with a contribution to WFUV during its membership drive, which begins on April 15.

    I used to listen to him when he was on WNEW. Back when music didn't suck.

    Why did Paul Walker cross the road?



























































    He wasn't wearing a seat belt.
