A Message from Rocket 101 founder Rick Rambaldo
The Story Of Rocket 101 Begins...
The year was 1989. I was working at a Top 40 station in Baltimore, MD. I heard that a guy in Erie, PA. was looking for a Program Director to start a new station he'd bought. I thought it sounded like an interesting challenge and I really wanted the opportunity to build a station from the "ground up". Little did I know how factual that phrase was going to become.

I sent my resume to Rick Rambaldo. He called me the next day and asked if I'd like to interview for the job. SURE!

We made the arrangements and I flew to Erie. Rick picked me up at the airport. I was kind of surprised because I figured he'd have someone on his staff meet me.

I was hired at ROCKET 101 in October of 1990... I'll never forget my first day. The drive to North East seemed to go on forever. I remember the station owner Rick saying, "Turn right at Vineyard Oil...can't miss it". Well I did, adding my own flaw to his theory. Read More... Coming Soon:
