I had gotten to a point that I wanted to something different besides play music. I was watching a TV show and a Christian entertainer said if you feel a strong burden about something maybe God wants you to do what is on your heart. I had been feeling frustrtaed that the same 3 o 4 four musicians in Cleveland always got the attention.I knew Rey Somich from WELW Radio and I had this idea to feature Clevland Music Scene as I knew it. Sort of like Fellini's Roma when tells you,you've seen the travel guides of Rome but now I will show the real story.Rey said yes he would like me to do a show like that and thats how I started on the radio . It was called Denny Carleton’s Cleveland Music Connection
I spent about 7 years on WELW. interviewing a lot of local musicians.I was joined after a few years by Fred Grupe where we morphed into a comedy interview program.
2.The Gift Of Grace
From there I went on to the Word radio which is owned by the same company as the Fish, where I had a Christian format interviwing local pastors,priests and musicians.I did shows on Blog talk radio, where I posted shows then they are archiived.I also did a radio program every Sunday from2-3 Pm and Saturday 6-7 on WERE 1490 Am radio aith legendary Sister Juanita Sheily and Jo Anne Tripoli. Jo Anne has recently passed.May she Rest In Peace
