I met Lin 23 years ago. We worked at different radio stations but close on the FM radio dial. I felt the connection and Lin had already been my best friend in the whole world as an XRT listener. When I finally met him he was so kind, smart, charming, knowledgeable, HILARIOUS, unusually cool, poetic, fun, warm hearted, sincere and more than I had ever imagined… he still calls me “little Lara Mondae”.
I am so honored to DJ at the same station, and grateful that I get to see Lin every Thursday at 5:30am. He asks “why are you always laughing?” and to that I reply “Well Lin, that’s because you are my sunshine… and for 25 years you’ve been making me smile.” Many times when I meet people and they learn I am a DJ at WXRT the first thing they say is “do you get to talk to Lin Brehmer?”. I’m starting to think Lin has a lot of best friends.
