OUr Hero, Lou Rufino
This page is dedicated to giving the Lou Rufino and Imus fans who happen to stop by a glimpse into the real Lou Rufino.Lou is one of the founding fathers of Minerva Audio Visual, Inc. and we pay homage to him here.All hail Lou!
Lou was born on a small goat and pheasant farm in upstate New York.He spent his youth playing hockey and dreaming about Farah Fawcett.In school Lou was an A student, not because he studied, but because he had a genius level IQ by the time he was 10.Finding school mundane and banal, he spent his time memorizing Neil Young songs lyrics and analyzing the cover art of "Sgt.Peppers" and "My Aim is True".Other pastimes of his youth included watching "Star Trek", listening to France on his short wave radio, and playing box ball with his friends from McDonald Avenue in Brooklyn.Lou also spent part of his youth as a clerk in downtown San Antonio, in the Texas state civil court.He was also a first time, long time.
By the time Lou got to college and started his first radio work at WFUV-FM, he was considered a music guru by many on the east coast.He dined with Ralph Nader, summered with Boz Scaggs, and toured with Iron Butterfly.During his sophomore year of college he contributed album review articles on a regular basis to the now defunct music magazines "True Story, Funny Story" and "My Personal Enjoyment Index".At WFUV-FM, Lou honed his DJ., production and engineering skills which would help immensely with his work on the "Imus in the Morning" program.While at WFUV, Lou would rub shoulders with some of the all time greats in New York media: Pete Woolley, Steve Herd, and German Fragoso.
...
During his college years, Lou also became expert at several drinking games, as well as becoming a heralded city wide expert in fencing.
Upon graduation from college, an event which Walter Cronkite may have said "changed pop culture" forever, Lou entered the working world in the New York media.
...
Lou worked at WHN, WHO, WHA HAPPENED, and THATS WHAS UP, before landing his pre-Imus gig at WFAN.That's right, Lou was at WFAN (along with FANer Eddie Scozzare) BEFORE Imus got there.By the time Imus arrived in 198?, Lou had immersed himself almost full time in his bizarre search for Big Foot.He also was amassing quite a nice collection of throw rugs and Spin magazines.
To date Lou, being the coolest, and clearly the hippest member of the Imus show (Sid would beg to differ, but he has a fake tan), takes solace in the fact that he is equally appreciated by the members of the 114th precinct, the old bartenders of "Tootsies" and his bridge partner, Scott Sapp.Lou thanks his friends for finally locating Rick and his bag at the last Mets opening day, and he also thanks all those engineers and producers who came before him in New York radio.It is upon their giant shoulders that he reaches new heights.It is also on these very shoulders that Lou cleans the blades of his ceiling fan.Carpe Diem!
...
The moment Lou found out Imus had renewed his contract.
Yes, we have no bananas.
A bygone era ... Imus crew circa 93 ...
Lou is an accomplished percussionist.
Lou stunned by the Bennifer breakup.
Pete trying to guard Lou ... it ain't happening.
