Classic Hits 103.9 WLPO

News from the Illinois Valley

The Wizzard has left the building

Posted by wlpo on November 23, 2014

Over 30 years of radio,  it became very real to listeners – though it had no physical address. And, Saturday night, “The Rock and Roll Wizzard”,  whose name is Tim Moritz, closed the doors of the “Juke Joint” for the last time on radio.
In 3 decades, Moritz took his show to several stations. Better than a decade was spent on 99-3 WAJK and 96-5 WKOT – now 96-5 The Wolf. The show featured top hits and forgotten ones – added by the host or his fans.
Saturday night’s 5 hour show featured Moritz’s favorites only. He took time to acknowledge his fans and what the show meant to him. It may not be the end though, as Moritz hinted the show could continue in podcast form.  He will continue to operate a dry cleaning and laundry business in Oglesby.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
