Throwback Thursday! That’s Lori? Yup – 25 Years Ago!
Dear God. Yes, that is me, Lori Voornas. It was a client party for when I worked at WBLM back in 1989. We had to wear tuxedos. And yes, it was the 80's...everyone smoked!
Apparently I had no help picking out my glasses and yes - that's lipstick! I haven't worn lipstick since. I got all spiffed up for this party! At WBLM (I worked in the office) we had huge client parties every year. And for some reason we always had to wear a take on tuxedos.
This is another party. That is my actual hair with no dye! Oh, I miss those days. It was nice and wavy. And look! I wore contacts! Someone is helping me get dressed! Man, I look young. Oh wait. I was!
This is me and our general manager Eve Rubbins. I liked her.
You can't really see, but look at my Chuck Taylor high tops! Loved those shoes. I miss the 80's.
I lived above a WBLM sales guy's house for a while. He would have the station over for parties too. Here I am just relaxing in my 105 pound body. My left thigh weighs that now.
Oh my God! Just realized, that's a cigarette in my hand. Oh...it IS an old picture!
My radio history had me jumping around a bit. After I left BLM, I went to work at WMGX for years and that's when I started doing morning radio! Then I left MGX for WCLZ, which went away, which led me to the Q. When I was on WCLZ, we changed it to WTPN for a couple of years. It was an incredible learning experience. One thing I learned is that Pete Dubuc is an awesome guy. He was my morning show partner and I will always be grateful to him for putting up with a radio experiment that went horribly wrong. Pete is now the lead singer of the band Gunther Brown.
I worked with Pete during the 2000 presidential election where Al Gore lost to George W. thanks to a supreme court decision. I was SO sure Gore was going to win, we made a bet. Since I lost - this was my punishment.
I remember how cold I was more than I was humiliated. Plus, making that sign gave me an awesome marker high.
