Saying goodbye to WRHU

IMG_4241

Graduation is nearly here. It’s been a hard week of goodbyes. I hosted my final Morning Wake Up Call today on 88.7 FM Radio Hofstra University, my last time being on-air as a student. It’s been an emotional day, but I wanted to share the montage my lovely co-host Neil A. Carousso made about me. WRHU, thanks for all the memories!

Paul Mecurio got his start as a Wall Street lawyer but made his way into comedy after a chance encounter with Jay Leno. Now a successful comedian with Emmy and Peabody wins and his own podcast, Mecurio reflects back on how he got to where he is today, and just how he got Sir Paul McCartney to leave a voicemail on his phone.

He brings his stand up act to Governor’s at the Brokerage in Bellmore Friday May 15 and Saturday May 16.

With Mother’s Day coming up this Sunday, there’s no better time to reflect on what our mothers mean to us. “A Letter to My Mom,” compiled by Lisa Erspamer, a former producer of the Oprah Winfrey Show, features letters from famous names like Shania Twain, will.i.am, Christy Turlington and everyday people addressed to their moms. It’s the third book in a series by Erspamer, the first two being “A Letter to My Dog” and “A Letter to My Cat.”

She shares her inspiration with us on the Morning Wake Up Call.
