                                             Happy New Year From Us To You

                                       Complete With Names and a Rhyme or Two

 It was something new and a pretty good start

So we thank you immensely for taking part

Through and WAPJ

We’re giving you more about our people and play

So as we grow and continue to get better

Give us a look, drop us a letter

To all our radio guests and the sports world around

Happy New Year and may your good times abound

Happy New Year:

 Owen Canfield a sports writer without peer

Brent Hawkins, dressing without fear

Deron Bayer a Mountaineer man

THS track and an O’Heron named Dan

Tony Turina class he oozes

Dennis Fowler seldom he loses

Taylor Christiano rugged is she

Brittany Kackowski tough is what you see

Brenden Lytton a record setting runner

Billy Neller nobody is funner

RJ Poniatoski the P-38s main force

Jamie Coty and Megan Monroy of course

Michael Colangelo of ESPN fame

Scott Serano formerly a Register Citizen sports name

Gilbert’s Scott Salius with a football season for the ages

Peter Wallace read him in the sports pages

Ed Gadomski, Tri-State baseball’s big czar

Gilbert QB Bobby Lippincott he took the`Jackets quite far

Dean Tsopanides a Torrington football power

Jada Mattiello over THS track does she tower

Eric Gamari and Christine his wife

The first couple of Torrington basketball life

A pair of Titans, Alan Wheeler and Cook Chris

Sarah Royals orange treads you can’t miss

Jim Pepper and Driscoll Dave

Mayor Ryan Bingham the Republicans do rave

Gregg Hunt so many teams has he led

Janet Giampaolo, the Raiders’ new sports head

Mike Ciesco and deSimas Gerry

Pat Tiscia, Yankee love does he carry

Jim Pepper and Tanguay Ray

Mississippi Mudcat any day

Tim Gaffney the brains behind this all

Jonathan Wilson on the radio having a ball

Dan Dunaj his football Raiders were strong

Mario Longobucco his name is so long

Both coaches won with style

Creating big maroon and white smiles

Peter Montesano he teaches us much

Of keepin’ on and courage and such

Steve Barlow one of the Republican American’s best

A witty talker, a solid guest.

As time goes by I expect this list to grow longer

What we give to you to be better and stronger.

But for now we must go

So happy New Year and a late ho, ho, ho.
