Norm N. Nite Finds A (Satellite) Home

He'd been broadcasting a weekly show from his hometown of Cleveland...on New York City's oldies WCBS/101.1. So, when the legendary station got all "JACKed" up, Norm N. Nite was without a gig, on a radio station that not only didn't play his brand of music...but on a station with no air personalities!

Our good friends at AllAccess.com report today that Norm has a new gig. He'll be on Sirius Satellite Radio's "Sirius Gold" channel on Saturday afternoons, 3-6 PM ET. Of course, that means Northeast Ohioans - at least those with Sirius receivers - will be able to hear the show without driving to New York City or subscribing to America Online.

It's part of an overall deal between Sirius and the Cleveland-based Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, which puts their Alan Freed Studio to much greater use. Norm and other Sirius hosts will use the studio on a daily basis.

Better late than never, but I believe AOL's radio content is now available without a subscription. Really doesn't matter at this point, of course...

Thanks for everything Norm. As a former New Yorker now living in Florida I used to have my cousin record your Sunday "NITE" show on WCBS-FM & send it to me every week. I am a personal friend of Joey Dee & Lois Lee (may she rest in peace) & would like to thank you for your help with THE FOUNDATION FOR THE LOVE OF ROCK & ROLL which, later became The National Music Foundation. Norm may God bless you & your family. I love you! All the best, Jimmy Fennellex
