Hi, This is Jonathan Green, WTMJ afternoon goof, retired. I assume
that you found
me here because of our connection through WTMJ. This website is here
so we can continue to connect.
Goofy? I called this “Goofy Green” because
I wanted a memorable name in the sea of forgettable website names.
It describes me well too.
My Own Business I have business reasons for this site.
• I operate what I call an Advertising Consultancy,
JONATHAN GREEN LLC. I created JG LLC so I could continue to represent
many of my WTMJ sponsors whose products and services I endorsed
during The Green House on WTMJ. Find them here on JG’s
• I also still perform auctions and MC duties, but I have
refocused for seasonal reasons. I am concentrating now on charity
golf outings. When I worked afternoons at WTMJ I didn’t play
golf. Working PMs and golfing don’t compliment each other.
Organizers of outings need an MC/Auctioneer earlier on weekdays
than I could accommodate them. Now I have taken up the sport and
I am available. Find out about my auctioneer services at ShowBIDness
with Fellow Geezers I can’t tell you how many of
you have said, “so how’s retirement?” My answer
is “It’s Great!” Friends & fans alike know
of my passion for riding my Harley. In Wisconsin that’s a
6-month pastime. So in 2011 we bought another home where winter
riding is possible in Tucson, AZ. It is there that I also discovered
golf and senior softball (I hadn’t played since I was 29)
in a retirement community where we are surrounded by friends. Locating
among other retired people is the best retirement decision I have
made so far!
my wife Kathy and me this September for a European
tour and river cruise!
was 23 years old, a US Army Spec 4, and then SSG in 1968-69.
I was stationed at the American Forces Network, Europe HQ
in Frankfurt and I did the “Top of the Morning Show”
on AFN Frankfurt. I also created and was the first host of
“Stateside Sound Survey” which ran nightly on
the whole AFN network.
When my Army time was up in May 1969 I left and I started
at WTMJ the next month. I haven’t been back there since…until
now. Please come with me.
