Bill Stedman returns to South Florida radio

Not that you'll be actually hearing it, but a familiar voice is returning to South Florida radio. Bill Stedman, who's bounced back and forth between Miami and the rest of the world since the late 1960s, is coming to town for the fifth time. He'll be program director at oldies station WMXJ (Majic 102.7), a job he previously held from 1989 to 1992. (WMXJ, announcing the hire, said Stedman is returning to the station "after a brief 16-year absence.")

Stedman's South Florida roots go way back to the Woodstock days, when he had a free-form nighttime show on WEDR back when FM rock radio liked to call itself "underground." In the mid-1970s he helped develop the original "Zeta4" rock format at WINZ, and he was also one of the original jocks at Y-100, WHYI. He replaces Bob Hamilton, who in the way of radio mysteriously vanished from the programming job at WMXJ in August, perhaps to go to the same place where all the Gene Pitney records did.
