The grandson of Savoy Records founder Herman Lubinsky, Sr., this Pittsburgh-based radio and television producer and music enthusiast is perhaps best known for his 'Doo-Wop '50' program on PBS. He also helped produce public television's The Very Best Of The Ed Sullivan Show.
He began his career at Monmouth, New Jersey's Cable TV-34 station. He went on to work for PBS stations in both Florida and Pennsylvania.
He was an extremely popular host and disc jockey for the WJRZ Sunday Night Request Show, a program that aired on Ocean County, New Jersey's WJRZ-FM radio station.
He was born and raised in New Jersey. He later settled in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Wendy Lawton.
In the early 2000s, he broadcast several episodes of Doctor Who (starring Tom Baker) that had never been seen on American television.
