New York University’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, part of the School of Continuing and Professional Studies (, will salute radio talk show host Joey Reynolds on November 27, 2006 as part of the Sizzle Series program.

Joey Reynolds just celebrated 10 years as the host of the popular and highly rated overnight show on WOR radio, the only live show out of New York City, which provides a platform and showcase for new and veteran performers, artists, and authors, and presides over “the Royal Order of the Night People.” Joey rose to national fame as a Top 40-radio personality and is considered by many radio experts to be the person who invented shock talk radio and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his accomplishments in radio, television and music. He is the author of “Let a Smile be Your Umbrella but Don’t Get a Mouthful of Rain.” A student and master of the human condition and never at a loss for an interesting opinion or insight, Joey will share stories about his unique career.
