Any of you who follow my blogging will know that Andy Senior (the radio DJ in Utica, NY), is the person that turned me on to collecting old records. I just love his radio station “Radiola” on 365 Radio. So when I planned my trip to New York, I contacted him to see if he would be willing to meet me and pose for a photograph. He agreed! So just this month, Dan and I met Andy and his wife for lunch in Utica!
I was thrilled to discover that Andy Senior really is the “real deal.” Not only is he genuinely likeable, but he is just as witty, knowledgeable, and kind-hearted in real life as he sounds on the radio. To top off the experience, he surprised me by giving me a record from his collection: “Sweet Flossy Farmer”, Decca Label #5524. Here is my earlier post about this recording. I have wanted it for a long time. I still can’t believe that Andy gave me this record! (Above is a photo of the two of us with the record.)
