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".

Billy may have a new Dunkin Donuts song to write in the near future, or at least he hopes so...
While the idea of inserting sandwich innards between two glazed donuts isn’t anything new — peep BGR and the Burger Joint’s Luther Burger and Slater’s Donut Burger, Dunkin’ Donuts may be the first mass market chain to offer the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich as an item on their menu.
Although, don’t head over to your nearest DD joint for a mouthwatering bite of sugar-laden awesome just yet. The new item is still being tested at “a few select Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in eastern Massachusetts,” a rep for the coffee chain told Eater.
Some have compared this indulgent dish to the KFC Double Down — the infamous breadless sandwich featuring bacon and cheese squeezed in between two pieces of chicken fillet. Except switch out the fillets for two glistening donuts and a fried egg. Mmm, how can you deny something so so good?
