Louis Moreau Gottschalk

Springtime and the great outdoors.  Beethoven captured one view of this; Aaron Copland another.  Or did he?

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
