Deminski & Doyle set to party for WCSX and the New Year

Even though Jeff Deminski and Bill Doyle won't officially start their new morning show on classic rock WCSX-FM 94.7 until 6am on January 5th, the guys will be hitting the airwaves the very moment they're legally allowed to at a second past midnight on New Year's Eve.

The remote broadcast is part of a New Year's Eve party for D&D listeners old and new at Snookers on Hall Rd. in Utica. Admission is free, there will be music all night with a DJ and Rudy's band Mindcandy will be performing live. The doors open at 7pm and there promises to be crazy games with great prizes all night long. The first 94 people through the door will get a commemorative D&D New Year's Eve t-shirt that reportedly looks pretty sweet.

"It took a lot to convince management at our new station to let us do something like this on the most competitive bar night of the year so we're trying to get as many people to turn out for it as possible", comments Deminski. "If there's a good turnout management will let us do more things like this. Please come and bring as many with you as possible. If you can't come, please spread the word!
