Middays 10am - 2pm

Judith Gross

My first love is radio. I'm an award-winning audio producer and I've spent most of my professional life  in front of a microphone. Radio and the music of my generation got me through my childhood and adolescence. This is my calling, so I wouldn't even try to imagine doing anything else. I love connecting with Cool 106.7's listeners over the airwaves middays every day and telling the world what I'm having for lunch. I am passionate about The Beatles and learn something new every weekday at 10:20 am during the Beatles Break. It's also makes me proud to be working for a locally-owned radio group that does so much for our community. I connect with the music we play because it's my music, too. What I especially like about being on-air on Cool 106.7 is doing public appearances and live remote broadcasts and getting to talk to the listeners in person. Then I can picture them listening as I talk into the mic so I never feel like I'm alone. Work never gets tedious when you're living your passion, and I feel lucky to be able to have so much fun doing my job.

2:00pm - 6:00pm

Thunder Reynolds

What's the best thing about the area?

That it's cheap and we have pro hockey?  thats good, right?

We know you can eat, so what's your favorite food?

Spaghetti at the Toys for Tots Dinner... never too early to start planning for next year!

What was or is your favorite song?

Isn't that a little personal for the web for all to see?

Who was or is your favorite Artist or Group?

Do I have to pick a favorite?  pleads the fifth!

And your favorite concert or performance was what?

Wouldn't you like to know... I'll say it was at the Arena.

What was your Best Radio Moment?

Watching a former co-worker walk into a glass door would probably be high up on the list.

Before CooL106.7 you were?

Was a DJ somewhere else, but you already knew that...

If not in radio, you'd be what/who?

A beer guzzling hockey fan, or is that a side gig?

6:00pm - 10:00pm

Dave Pal

Dave is the evening DJ on COOL106.7, and is entering his 30th year in broadcasting. Highlights include broadcasts from Hawaii for the movie premiere of "Pearl Harbor", to flying with the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.

When off-air, Dave performs as John Lennon with the nationally touring Beatles tribute band "Beatlemania Again", and solo tribute show "The Lennon Legacy". He most recently returned from a tour of Japan, Korea, and China, and appearances as Lennon at Yoko Ono's "Imagine Peace" exhibit at Bucknell University, and the "John Lennon - The NYC Years" exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex in New York City.

Bill Flynn Polka Show (Sun, 6am-11am)

Bill Flynn

There are not many in broadcasting who have achieved the status of Bill Flynn. Bill has touched the entire spectrum of broadcasting both on radio and TV. Besides doing an air shift for Equinox Broadcasting and his popular Sunday polka show on COOL 106.7, he is part of our sales staff throughout the week.  His community presence is remarkable since he does over fifty live broadcasts and appearances throughout the year on COOL 106.7.  His popular polka show is also heard in over 120 countries on the polka network.  It is rare that anyone in broadcasting works in sales throughout the week and then works on the air on weekends.  He is a living legend and has been inducted into the Binghamton Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
