Remembering 9/11/01: “Shotgun Tom” Kelly, On-Air Personality
On 9/11, I think we all knew where we where and what we were doing. That morning in September, I got a call from a friend of mine Tony Pepper.
Tony said that we were being attacked and to turn on the television, right then, I saw the second plane hit the World Trade Center second Tower. I was shocked, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, it looked like a movie but it wasn’t. it was reality.
A friend of mine Jeff Kaufer I used to work with at another station called me. You see, Jeff got out of radio and had become a jet pilot for an airline. He said the sound of that jet at full power going into the Twin Towers made him sick.
What a sad day, It was very hard for me to go on K-EARTH 101 and have fun that day on 9/11.
