Growing up in Riverhead in the 1960s, Jack Kratoville always wanted to be on the mic. He got his wish, forging a career that started with unpaid newsreads on WRCN and continued to include stints at WLNG, WWHB, WMJC and more.
These days you’ll find him on 106.7 WLTW as well as out back of his Flanders home trying to improve the reception on his vast collection of old radios. On this episode, we joined Jack after hours at WRIV – an apt setting for a conversation on radio history. The squeaky chairs were added for atmosphere.
