was on-air at the legendary CKLW fresh outta school.
From there it was "Keener 13", " ABC's FM rocker 'RIF and then on to business in the Big Apple, where Pat
had two long-running gigs at two famous addresses: 95.5 WPLJ

(hey, Pat, make up your mind) to Chevrolet and Mattel to " Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" and The American Comedy Network.
