Lucky Larry Remembers His First Day On The Air [VIDEO]
I was thinking back this morning about my very first day on the air and the very first song I ever got to mention live on the air. As you can imagine, I was very nervous, it was my first time on a real commercial radio station (all of my experience up until that point was on a closed circuit college station at UT Arlington). It was shortly after midnight, because I was on the midnight to 6 a.m. shift on weekdays, and I remember saying something like this before the Spice Girls “Wannabe:”
Hey this is Lucky Larry on Mix 107.3 and here are the Spice Girls!”

With all this reminiscing, I thought about five of the biggest songs that we were playing back in 1997 on Mix 107.3 and here are just a few of the videos:
