Perhaps you got the impression from the whole "Graduation
2004" section up above this, but my life is about to change a lot.
I've been sitting in classrooms for 17 years, and its going to feel strange
not sitting in one. Over the past few months, changes have been
slowly taking place on this website. My graduation is the first
event to receive so much attention on egrabow.com, and I'm going to keep
putting new stuff from my graduation/ graduation party up in this section.
The Ryan Grabow Network section will also receive special attention, as that
section will be used to provide better demo material for my job search.
I gotta batten down the hatches and ride this wave!
certainly couldn't join dozens of clubs and student organizations while at
school, I did enjoy those I could be a part of. I was president
of the Commuter Student Association for a year and a half, which didn't get
the troubled club very far (mainly a time thing, again), but which I did use
to have fun with the title "president" and to attend various meetings around
the campus (faculty-slash-student meetings).
Channel 73 (abbreviated PTV) was a major reason for choosing C.W. Post and
the first club I joined. In my freshman and sophomore years, I
hung around the station a lot. My junior year saw a massive
drain of my free time and I was never there, unfortunately. In
my last semester, I had the time again and helped out with the production of
"Sportsweek Live" on Wednesday nights. "Sportsweek Live" was the
show I helped on more than any other, I was also around early on for "Talk
Live," and my project on Speed Bumps and Stop Signs on Campus was used for
Last but certainly most would be WCWP, my
greatest reason for choosing Post. From the second half of
my freshman year 'till the end, I was an active member of the station.
For seven semesters I held two or three hour shifts (actually, my first one
was only 90 minutes) on Webradio WCWP and would have had a better shot at FM
if Steinberg hadn't robbed us of half our student on-air hours.
Most of my friends were made at the station, and the faculty was great at
giving me advice... I came okay and left great.
My last live "Prison Break Radio" program was done on Thursday, April 29th
from 7pm-10pm on Webradio WCWP, and a pre-recorded one was aired on May 6th.
On Wednesday, May 5th, my friend Mike Chimeri finished his long running Jazz
program, and I was there as a guest for most of the show. Jay,
who's a disco nut and plays 70's music on his show, also dropped in.
Mike recorded his last show on two camcorders and an MD, definitely
preserving the historic moment! Even Dan Cox, WCWP's General
Manager, dropped in. Oh yeah, and Alexis also came by (since she
was sitting in the next room and had time to kill). The first
picture is me, the last one is Mike, and you can see Jay in the middle one.
The end of Frasier, the end of Friends, the end of us on Webradio WCWP, the
end of me sitting in class. (okay, I've come full circle)
