The radio career that “Oedipus” has enjoyed began in 1975 as a deejay at MIT’s college station, WTBS (now WMBR). He gained notoriety by creating the first Punk Rock radio show in America, introducing Punk and New Wave to Boston and to the country. In 1977, Oedipus moved to WBCN Radio in Boston, and in 1981 was named Program Director, a position he held until 2004. Under his tutelage, the station was recognized as an industry leader in breaking new music and dominated the Boston airwaves with consistently high ratings by weaving the station into the fabric of the Boston community through innovative programming and numerous charitable events. Oedipus hosted the acclaimed “Nocturnal Emissions” program for more than 25 years, playing new tracks every Sunday night, and an annual Christmas Eve show which continues today on WGBH Radio. In 1995, Oedipus was named Vice President of Programming for WBCN, and in May 2001 Boston Magazine named Oedipus the third most influential person in the arts in Boston. In 2003, Oedipus was elevated to Vice President of Alternative Programming for Infinity Broadcasting (now CBS Radio), responsible for 16 alternative and rock stations throughout the country, a position he held for 3 years. Since WBCN’s demise he has kept his innovative programming tradition alive on his website “The Oedipus Project” (oedipus1.com) featuring new Indie music. He also hosts “The Oedipus Project” every Saturday morning from 10 am-Noon on RadioBDC the Boston Globe’s internet radio station. Oedipus is a board member of Stop Handgun Violence and The Technology Broadcasting Corporation of MIT. He is a member of the Board of Mentors for Community Servings, an organization that feeds Boston-area families with acute life-threatening illnesses, and is involved with the Boston Music Awards and Mobius (an artist-run center for experimental work in all media). He has his own philanthropic organization, The Oedipus Foundation, dedicated to artistic offense, environmental defense and the enhancement of life. Oedipus can be found in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, in the “Dedicated to the One I Love: Rock and Radio” exhibit.
