Andy Valeri is a lifelong lover of music since first digging into his parent’s record collection at the age of three. He is deeply involved in both the listening and collecting of it as well as its production and promotion, having owned and operated his own record and publishing company, and doing hundreds of hours of on air DJ’ing at WYSO. He has long served as the Rev. Cool’s right hand man back up on ‘Around The Fringe,’ and has occasionally filled in as host of ’The Jewel Case’ and ‘Excursions’ as well. Community media is Andy’s vocation, with well over three decades of professional experience in it, including through academic and civic engagement in local and national media policy.
