Jack Beebe calls himself “Mr. Backstage” but in terms of radio and television history in New York since the 1950s, he’s had a front row seat.

He started as a teen disk jockey on WALK in East Patchouge, worked alongside Barbara Walters and the future Allison “The Nightbird” Steele at WPIX-TV, kept watch over Murray the K at WINS…and that’s not even mentioning his time broadcasting in Korea or the blood sweating hippopotamus.

Jack Beebe.

We were invited to the Sayville Library for a community breakfast to help kick off The Great Give Back 2018. It was a great opportunity to share what LIRTVHS does but also to get to know and appreciate all the other organizations doing so much for Sayville and the community.

Our table at the Great Give Back, Sayville Public Library.

So we did some on-the-spot recording with some of our co-attendees, asking them to explain their mission and how it impacts the community. See below for ways to get in touch with them. And we also couldn’t resist getting some of their memories of radio on Long Island and beyond.

Thanks to Sayville Library director Jen Fowler for puting this great community event together and for everyone who talked with us!
