WYRK’s DJs Offer Back-to-School Advice For Buffalo’s Students

It’s almost that time of year again. In just a few short weeks, Buffalo’s students — from kindergarteners to college seniors — will be headed back to school. We know hindsight is 20/20 and that you’re supposed to learn from, not regret, your mistakes, but our DJs wanted to offer some advice.

If our DJs could go back to school knowing what they know now, they would…


…definitely have tried harder at sports. I was always intimidated by guys that were more athletic. Looking back, if I had tried harder, I could have been more competitive and possibly even earned a letter!!


…likely purse a job in the public sector….teaching, police officer….jobs I didn’t consider when I was young. Why? Great benefits, health insurance, A PENSION.  How many careers today offer all those things? And many offer early retirement incentives, too. Certainly not as exciting as what I ended up doing, but no matter how much you plan and save, you never think you’ll have enough to retire on, unless the taxpayers are paying for it.


…have payed a little closer attention to the education that was being given to me, rather than girls, parties, clothes and the things that teens do! I probably wouldn’t have been such a ‘clown’ in class. As for my career, in relation to going back and redoing things…I love radio, and there’s nowhere I’d rather be than in radio. Maybe if I was more focused on books and had a bit more guidance…maybe I could have been a lawyer…doctor…who knows?

John La Mond

…have gone to law school. One of the biggest regrets of my life!

Wendy Lynn

…I wouldn’t care what anyone else thought of me.

Brett Alan

…totally hit up all the parties that I passed on because I didn’t want to get in trouble.  I missed out on a lot of fun by staying out of trouble.
