It was only a matter of time before he made a career out of it. The Glencoe resident said he was always intrigued by radio, making visits to Chicago often as a child to witness live broadcasts. Once he went off to school at the University of Illinois Urbana- Champaign, he made it his No. 1 passion. Today, he hosts his own podcast, Vinyl Schminyl Radio, which has reached nearly 1 million downloads. “At school, I began working for the student-run station called WPGU,” Stern said of his first radio job. “It was one of the only commercial radio stations run by students in the country. We broke a lot of music on PGU. It was when classic rock was new.” After many fond memories working for WPGU, Stern sought out a radio job after graduation, landing at WXRD in Woodstock. There, he was “the morning guy” for several years, but always wanted to break into the bigger market of Chicago. “I told myself if I don’t get into a bigger market by the time I’m 25 years old, I’m going to go into sales,” Stern said. “I didn’t want to be one of those radio guys who jumps from small market to small market. I didn’t want to be a gypsy.” Coincidentally, the day after Stern’s 25th birthday, he started in radio sales. For many years later, he sold radio time to advertisers, then later got into more tangible sales with selling professional audio visual products. While his career revolved around the world of radio, it didn’t necessarily give him the airtime he craved. So, eight years ago, he began the podcast he calls Vinyl Schminyl Radio in April 2010. Originally, Vinyl Schminyl started as a Monday through Friday “classic deep cut” of the day, where he played one song and talked about its back story, where it charted, the motivation behind it and some history of the artist — “more than any radio announcer will talk about,” he said. That “deep cut” still exists today, plus some thematic weeks focusing on a particular year or topic. Then there is also The Vinyl Schminyl Radio Hour, a longer version of his podcast hosted once a week. “I play more music in the hour and I don’t go into the back story that great of a deal,” Stern said. After he launched the hour-long podcast, Stern noticed the downloads started to pile up. So Glencoe resident Bob Stern created and hosts the Vinyl Schminyl Radio podcast available online and on iTunes. Photo Submitted much that he calculated them: he was getting as many downloads in one month than he was previously receiving within a six-month period. “There are countries around the world that I didn’t even think played classic rock music, like Iran or Japan, who were and still are downloading my podcast,” he added. “There are some foreigners that are looking at Facebook or trolling the internet and they are looking for classic rock. It’s a big thing in this big world that’s not accessible to them so they found me.” Today, Vinyl Schminyl shows have been Please see vinyl, 21 STEM CELL MAGNET THERAPY Now Covered by Blue Cross Blue Shield Dr. Angelo Reyes, MD is a Leading Provider of Non-Surgical Treatment Options & Provider for Medicare & Most Insurances *Published in American Academy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation PM R 9 (2017) 1236-1243 Glenview, Highland Park, Vernon Hills, Bloomingdale & Hinsdale Offered by Get Natural Relief from Arthritis & Soft Tissue Pain Relief, Regenerate, Rejuvenate QUALIFIED CANDIDATES: • Diagnosed with Osteoarthritis • Have a Soft Tissue Injury • Want a Non-Steroidal Option • Want to Avoid Surgery • Other Interventions have Failed CLINICAL STUDY: 92.5 % PATIENT SATISFACTION* 847.243.6978 Most Appointments available within 48 hours
