family's connection with WDRC goes back a long way. On
November 8, 1932, my grandfather - James R. Rabbett - delivered
a speech on WDRC in a bid for the Connecticut State Senate
to see first page of speech). During the late 1930s,
my father - Ted Brouder - appeared on the station as a member
of The Hartford Insurance Company's amateur theater group. My
own involvement with the station began as a listener in the 1960s.
I hosted a Sunday morning public affairs show at WDRC for
a year which led to being hired for the summer of 1973 as Big
From M&M Mars."
