WFDU Archives: Steve Nicholas

Host profile: Steve Nicholas

Steve Nicholas was born and raised in Bergen County NJ - attended and graduated from the Metropolitan (Teaneck) campus at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Class of 1983. He began his broadcasting career in 1979 at WFDU-AM, and did regular weekly shows through 1983, and served as the station’s business manager from 1980-1981 and its general manager from 1981- 1983.

Steve commented, "I am very pleased and honored to return home to WFDU, where on 'Ride The Wave” you can hear wonderful music from multiple decades which produced great songs from all artists: famous, infamous, and forgotten, all interspersed with stories of whimsy, trivia, theme songs, commercials, and pop culture. Reminisce, remember, and recall the past every Friday night.

One of the things I enjoy the most is providing my listeners and audience with a little something extra – a forgotten tune, untold story, lost artist or special remembrance along with sharing the passion for the music and its beloved history. You never know what you may hear next."

Outside the station, Steve is a lifelong devoted New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets fan, avid reader of biographies, current events and historical accounts, and animal enthusiast, and enjoys walking his two Welsh Terriers, Drake and Julia.
