We don't want to be strangers...

Posted By on Fri, Sep 14, 2007 at 10:36 AM

Listening to the Radio Rangers on WDEV, live from the Tunbridge World’s Fair on "The Mark Johnson Show." Listening on the Internet. Modern world, eh?

And as the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus reports this morning:

He's been known as Buster the Wonder Dog's companion, the guy who hosts "Music to go to the dump by," a radio-station owner (WDEV in Waterbury) and personality, a longtime auto racing broadcaster and Thunder Road part-owner.

Now Ken Squier can add a new title to his highly varied resume: 2007 Vermont Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year.

The Vermont Chamber of Commerce picked Squier, of Stowe, to honor his extensive service for the communities within Vermont.

Bravo! There’s only one Ken Squier.

Full disclosure: Yours truly’s been a news stringer with ‘DEV, The Friendly Pioneer at 550 AM & 96.1 FM since....1981.

Bernie Sanders winning the mayor’s race by 10 votes is what triggered it.  All of a sudden, Burlington, Vermont had something, and someone, that demanded news coverage, and boots on the ground in the Queen City.

Still have the same microphone.

Hey, it works.
