Greg McShea

I've got a long connection to the Mohawk Valley, having attended Utica schools and graduating from Utica College with a B.S. Degree in Public Relations. I've hosted a number of radio programs, and my voice has been heard on the local airwaves through the years. When I'm not broadcasting, I enjoy reading science publications and sci-fi novels, traveling to some favorite vacation spots, and anything "Star Trek". I am a native of the Utica area and have many friends and family members in the area.

We know that Santa fills "stockings hung by the chimney with care", but sometimes he gets a little help from us. I don't know about you, but it seems that it's ten times more difficult to figure out what to fill those stockings with, rather than the bigger presents under the tree. Here's some help.
