Sound Matters episode 116 features Tom’s 2nd Sound Matters Show conversation with Riley O’Neil from 1440 WROK Radio Morning Show. In this episode, I talk with Riley about his four decade career in radio including his little discussed early years that goes all the way back to 1983. Aside from a few stints on a couple of other stations through the years, Riley has been a mainstay and beloved radio personality in Rockford, IL on WROK for 40 years. BONUS: Riley and I also dip our toes into some long overdue conversation and analysis about our mutual enjoyment of of the much-maligned genre of Disco music (bring it on haters… LOL). I consider Riley a great friend, and our conversations together both on and off the air are effortless and so much fun! Don’t miss this one…
