Today marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. Here's a story from our former General Manager Gregory Adamo about the station on that day.

"When I was coming on campus, Lisa, our CUNYCAP, called me to say that she just heard Howard Stern say that a plane hit the World Trade Center. I immediately went on the air and shared information as it came in. Students stayed on, providing updates. That afternoon we got a phone call from South African News. The person said they were trying to get a hold of someone in New York radio, but could not get through. They asked if I would be willing to go on the air. I did, explaining to their listeners that Staten Island was home to many police and firefighters and that we could see the smoke from campus. Later that semester John Ladley and I reached out to the NYC Police Department to offer to set up a system for making sure in any emergency they could use us to get information out. The lieutenant gave each of us his business card and this card, which I still carry in my wallet."

Frank Siller returns to NYC as part of 500-mile 9/11 walk, sharing message of heroism with Staten Island students

If you just heard about Frank Siller’s walk from DC to the site of the World Trade Center, here’s the article.
“Siller’s “Never Forget Walk’' has a two-fold goal: The first is to encourage Americans to “never forget” the sacrifices of the nearly 3,000 Americans — including his brother Stephen — murdered by the events of 9/11. His second goal is to garner support for the foundation, which provides mortgage-free homes to the families of late first responders, Gold Star families and catastrophically injured veterans.”

'What do heroes do? They run toward danger, not away from it,' the CEO of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation tells kids at Blessed Sacrament School.

Andrew Peter DiLorenzo Obituary (2021) Staten Island Advance

We at WSIA would like to extend our condolences to the family of our former Program Director Andrew Dilorenzo, CSI Class of 2012.

Andrew loved WSIA and the WSIA community so much that he tried to join the station prior to his first semester at the College. As a student leader, Andrew was a force of nature, always willing to take the extra step to assist his fellow station members in both academic and extracurricular pursuits, and to promote our station throughout Staten Island and the greater City University communities.

As a multi-year member of WSIA's Board of Directors, Andrew mentored many incoming student volunteers who shared in his love of making radio happen here on Staten Island. On-air, Andrew shone, letting his optimism and humor guide his afternoons co-hosting WSIA's Drive Time Live program.

Andrew will truly be missed—he was one of a kind. Our hearts go out to his wife Gabby and the rest of his family.

Today’s #ThrowbackThursday is about the Fresh Kills compilation, a cd featuring tons of awesome Staten island bands, and the benefit concert to help make raise funds for pressing the CDs.
The bands who performed at the benefit concert were the finalists and did their part to help promote the CD. We spoke to Al Barry about the concert, here’s what he had to say:

“The Fresh Kills Benefit Concert was our second WSIA concert at the college's Williamson Theater and our 5th overall for the 1988 to 1990 group of WSIA Alumni. It was by far the most enthusiastic and engaging night for our staff, as we were all eager to get the local talent "Best of Our Bands" CD out since there was quite the buzz surrounding it within the Staten Island music community. At the time, the music scene on Staten Island was still robust, with the many venues on Bay Street, as well as across the island hosting live music weekly. This concert was organized to actually offset the costs of production for the compilation's production and each band that signed on knew they would make "the cut". They also knew that they would have to help promote it and get the word out to buy the CD if another was to happen. That did not fare well for us. This was before the internet and sales of the CD were painfully slow. I was not around for the final tally as I transferred to Dayton University in August of 1990, after obtaining my AA at CSI but I do know only 1000 copies were pressed and I don't think the station did a second CD so it did not pan out as expected.”

Today’s #Throwback Thursday comes from our former News Director, Seamus Hughes. In May of 2019, Seamus interviewed comedian Richie Byrne to help promote Richie’s “Byrne Doubt” tour. Here’s what he had to say:

“I am a child of comedy, so when I heard I had to interview the warmup comic for the Dr. Oz show, I was over the moon. I got in contact with Richie and his publicist and booked the show. Richie is a native Staten Islander, and his first-ever headlining tour starting at the St. George Theatre was like fate.

I was anxious asking questions at the beginning of the interview but slowly eased into it, asking questions about how being a warmup comic is way different from being a standup comic due to the different power dynamic. He was pretty shocked that I was such a good interviewer. I don’t know if it was my love of comedy or how chill he was, but I loved listening to a comic talk about other comics, like Lisa Lampanelli, and how she created her Roast persona while he was working with her; he told her she would never work again if she kept that routine going, and she was headlining at Caroline’s six months later.

It’s interviews like this that make you realize why working in radio is so awesome! Richie invited me and another guest to the opening night of Byrne Doubt the next Friday. My friend and I went and he thanked me when he got to the part about doing press for the tour. It was surreal! I won’t ever forget Richie or Lisa, his publicist. They were so nice.
