Dedicated in memory
joined the station for 10p - 2a in 1981 from WCAO in Baltimore,
replacing the departing Dana
Stephens who went to work for bigger (union) bucks at WKYS.
later did air work at B104 in Baltimore before returning to her
home in Sacramento. Today, Lisa is busy raising her kids in Nashville.
there! My Dad googled me a while back (after going through the
porn star, Lisa Kay (sorry guys, not me), and found me on your
site!! What a thrill!
was hired by Steve Kingston
from WCAO in August of 1981 and was fired by Jerry
Steele in Sept. of 1982. I guess I was making "union
buck" scale wages (coming from a union shop) and First
Media didn't want to pay that anymore.
was the first female who was on the air before midnight (at age
23) and even filled in for Don
Geronimo (6-10pm) when he was on vacation. The General
Manager didn't care for this "girl" on the air,
but Kingston was very supportive until he left.
Wolf did the overnights at the time I was there. I was very
proud to work with such an incredible air staff. Elliott
& Woodside with Loo
Katz, Dave Foxx, Waylon
Richards, Don Geronimo,
Max Wolf and later, Joe
Theismann, Bruce Kelly,
and JJ McKay. Back then, being
the only female on staff had it challenges, but I didn't want
to be treated any differently and didn't mind being teased as
the "guy with the bumps on his chest"!
was the only time in my 25 year radio career that I was fired
and I went on to pioneer a lot of "female firsts" in
the business. After my marriage to Marty Bass failed, I went home
to Sacramento, CA and did a ten year stint as morning show host
(not side kick) at KRAK / KNCI-FM then left after I re-married
to move to Nashville, TN. I worked a little at WSM-FM doing mornings
then afternoons before becoming pregnant with my second child
(yes, you can get pregnant in your 40's!). I retired from radio
in January 2001 and now stay at home raising my boys, ages 13

The photo above is from June 1982, in the Greenbelt main air studio.
A couple of years or so after this photo was taken Lisa married
Marty Bass of WJZ-TV, Baltimore (weatherman). To my knowledge
the marriage lasted maybe a year before they split and she left
the time I knew Lisa she was always warm and outgoing. I never
worked at WPGC but grew up listening to it. I worked with Dave
Kellogg and Jack Alix at
WXTR and even engineered
a good portion of the "Big
Daddies Weekend" that included a lot of the sound bites
you feature on this site. Thanks for the great tribute to a great
