Go Back to Bayonne Seaside Tony

Here is an amusing story about bennies. A few years ago a song came out about "Seaside Tony." In the song, Tony was from Bayonne, and "wore a quart of cologne." I wish I could find that song, it was pretty funny.

Snip...

["A Benny is someone who's not a local from New York, with a New York/northern New Jersey attitude," said Brian Phillips, a radio jock on the popular Jersey Shore alternative rock station, G106.3. "It elicits quite the response. Every time that subject is brought up, the phone lines light up."

(Phillips himself commutes an hour from northern Jersey to the Jersey Shore each day for work, but in a debate with his listeners, it was determined he is not a Benny because he contributes to traffic congestion year round.)]

As a side note, G106.3 is not half as good as WHTG 106.3 was before it was bought. I still see the old black and red WHTG bumper stickers occasionally and get nostalgic for the radio stations glory days of roughly '85 to 2000.

If I had a dime for everyone on the net that wanted the old FM106.3 back...

No, wait, a dollar...

Okay, ten dollars...

Aaah, nevermind. Try listening to Altrok Radio (concocted by a few ex-FM106.3-folks) at http://www.altrok.com and see if that helps any...
