Brother Wease has been a morning radio fixture in Rochester for over twenty years, in addition to hosting shows on XM Satellite Radio and WBUF in Buffalo.
Wease is known for his openness with listeners, including the sharing of much of his personal life. He is a war veteran, having completed three tours of duty in Vietnam. He has been married three times and has six children. He met his current wife, Doreen, when she was a guest on his show. He is a motorcycle enthusiast and an avid poker player.
His work history includes stints as a concert promoter, a mail carrier, and an overnight disc jockey. He is part owner of Physical Graffiti, a tattoo parlor on Ridge Road.
The champion of all things Rochester, Wease is adored by his listeners as the city's foremost proponent of cultural events and recreational activities. Brother Wease served as an emcee at Woodstock in 1994 & 1999.
Wease founded a charity called Wease Cares in honor of a friend who died after a long bout with cancer in 1998.
Gregg "Opie" Hughes of The Opie and Anthony Show has referred to Brother Wease as his mentor. Hughes worked with Wease at the same station in Rochester when he was first breaking into the business. Nationally syndicated talk radio host Stephanie Miller was once a co-host with Wease, using the on-air name "Sister Sleaze".
