In September 1987, a veteran air personality took to the airwaves with a Saturday night all-request program at WXKS-FM “Kiss 108” in Boston. Named Open House Party, the show became a smash hit for the then 45-year-old talent who in 1971 was Program Director of Top 40 WMEX in Boston.
While this gave John Garabedian newfound life as a nationally known DJ, from 1969 he had also been a radio station owner. In the late 1970s, he added a second station — in Nantucket.
Some 40 years later, Garabedian is grabbing FM signals again — this time through his company CodComm.
