Shimes in the Morning... Weekdays 6am - 10am
I started in radio at WENY back in 1981 just outta high school. I then went on the WELM/94 ROCK for a few years and learned radio through Street Stryer. The late 80's found me in Watkins Glen in the studios of WNGZ.. WINGZ 105 driving the WINGZ Corvette. After Tom and Marion sold it, I went on a few year radio hiatus to Texas to work in food management... I then came back back to Upstate Ny .. and back to WNGZ 105 mornings. I then got the call from Dom Malone who was on the Met to come do mornins... and 15 years later I am still here doing mornings.

Hi I'm John Fanning. Music lover, Musician, and DJ on 95 The Met.
It all started July 28, 1981 the day I was born. A life of promise and success with the world at my fingertips, or at least a career working for IBM. On August 1, 1981, MTV was born and changed my life forever. I spent my childhood watching MTV, mimicking the Clash and Billy Idol. I found my true love and it was music. I spent my teen years and 20's in different local original bands, playing dingy basements and bars throughout Broome County and New York State. I also worked in restaurants, where I was often told, "you have a voice for radio."
In College, I studied music and majored in Audio Engineering. With a little help from a good friend, I landed my first and only radio gig working for Equinox Broadcasting. Working with music and being able to talk about my passion on a daily basis is amazing. I love the connections I make with our listeners, and hope they enjoy our time together as well. I have a lot to learn and a long way to go, but I have found my new calling and it is radio.
