Paul Richards is a lifetime Long Islander born and bred. He knew from as far back as 1965 that he wanted to make radio his career. And he did. After graduating from a communications college in Boston, he launched his broadcast journey as a newsman in Oneonta, NY in the fall of 1974. Four months later he was the morning man for progressive rock WAAL in Birghampton. In 1976 he was doing double duty on Long Island; full time at WGLI and part time weekends at WBAB, both in Babylon. He's also done stints at WNYG, also in Babylon. In 1999 he began a long association with a major broadcasting group first doing middays and then later morning guy for what was then B-103 and in 2005 a fill in personality at LOVE 96. But it was in 2006 that he landed a dream job as program director and morning host at legendary WHLI which was still running an adult standards format at that time. He semi-retired from radio in 2015 but just like many before him, the bug bit him again. That's why he's here. His loves are many and include music of all kinds, food, and The New York Yankees to name a few. He's happy and proud to be associated with Oldies98.
