’ professional foray into radio began in the summer of 1970, as a part-time DJ in Harvey, Louisiana and since then, he's never looked back. In early 1964, Pat attended a party where The Beatles’ I Want To Hold Your Hand
was played over and over…no one had even heard of The Beatles at the time, but he knew he was hooked on the Fab Four! With the take-off of internet radio in the late 90's, Pat found his niche in Beatles-A-Rama!!!
, which over the past decade has grown to over 30,000 daily listeners. In July 2006, Beatles-A-Rama!!!
was included in a write-up about internet radio in Rolling Stone.
