East Side Dave McDonald

WRAT-FM announces “East Side” Dave McDonald as joined the RAT Morning Show. He began his new position on 9/15/14. He joins 18 year Rat Rock veteran Carl Craft and morning sidekick, Gotts.

A native of Monmouth County, McDonald grew up in Spring Lake, NJ and now resides in Neptune.

His past credits include a stint as producer for the Ron and Fez show on SIRIUS XM as well as guest appearances on the Opie and Anthony show. McDonald also had his own radio show called the Davey Mac Sports Program XL. Following several television appearances on shows like TLC’s America’s Worst Tattoos and “truTV presents, Worlds Dumbest…,” Dave kicked around the comedy scene and ended up at 95.9 WRAT-FM.

“Dave has been a great addition to the show. He’s got the fun, upbeat vibe that the show craves without being fake or over the top. He’s totally fitting in with me and Gotts and so far the listeners have welcomed him to their favorite morning show. It’s funny how personally they’ve taken it, going so far as to “welcome him to The Rat” at our first public appearance last Friday” ,said Carl Craft, WRAT-FM Program Director and Morning show co-host.

Children and parents gather in a circle for one of the many KidFest activities.

The little ones ran rampant once again as MAGIC 98.3 FM hosted Kidfest this past March! One of New Jersey’s hottest, free, fun-filled family events was back for its fourth year at the Rutgers University College Avenue Gymnasium, in New Brunswick, NJ, with a supporting sponsorship from The Children’s Hospital at Saint Peter’s University Hospital.

Filled with the laughter of children having a wonderful time, Kidfest offered families a wealth of activities: games, crafts, cupcakes, live music, princess photos, a Medieval Times jousting match, face painting, magician John Pizzi, balloon animals, sock-counting contest, appearances by live characters, coloring center, sports, and health information, including free blood pressure and blood sugar screenings for parents and examinations for teddy bears.

The dedicated staff of MAGIC 98.3 FM completed another successful Kidfest for the families of Central Jersey and once again brought forth an educational and fun event for the children. With the help of our excellent clients and Rutgers University, all who attended were entertained for hours and won multiple prizes. MAGIC 98.3 FM looks forward to a fifth year once again at Rutgers University and anticipate year five to be the biggest yet!
