About the author
Jim Botticelli, a 1976 Northeastern University graduate, is a retired Boston Public Schools teacher. In college, he drove a cab and learned the city's cow paths. An avid collector of all things mid-century, particularly 45s, he was also known as a DJ, hosting "Lost & Found" and "The Sugar Shack" on WMBR-FM at MIT, as well as producing the Time Tunnel on WILD-AM, the now defunct R&B station formerly based in the Dudley Square area. His DJ skills are still called upon to this day.
