"They ran out of titles and
didn't know what to do with
me," Pasman said. "So, I was
offered the position as assis-
tant program director, and
then I became program direc-
tor. My history is very
unusual in that the bulk of
my development happened all
at one radio station and in a
major market . . . "
In 1985, Pasman left WRIF
— after initiating such pro-
grams as The WRIF Rock
Cafe — and formed his own
band, Domino, a rock and soul
group that not only produced
records on its own label
(MoCity Music) but also open-
ed for several well-known rock
`n roll acts such as Bob Seger,
Joe Jackson, Nick Lowe and
Ashford and Simpson.
"Two years later, I decided
I had to get myself a real job
again," he said. This time, the
road forked into WCSX,
Detroit's classic rock station.
Pasman joined WCSX in
December 1987 as host of the
Sunday evening "Motor City
Bluez Project." It wasn't long
until he was designated pro-
ducer of the morning show,
and less than a year after join-
ing the station, Pasman was
appointed program director.
"I am responsible for pretty
much everything that is
played on the radio with the
exception of commercials,"
Pasman said. "I help put the
music together, the air staff
together, work on promotions
and get involved in television
spots a little bit. I'm sort of
like the manager on a
baseball team."
However, this manager
doesn't mind going to bat for
his ball players.
"I fill in for disc jockeys once
in a while," he said. "I do that
so I know exactly what
they're going through. So,
when they come to me and
say, 'It's hard for me to do my
job because I couldn't do this,
this and this,' I can tell them
I understand what they mean.
Besides, being on the radio is
really fun."
Along with the fun
moments of being on the air,
Pasman admitted there have
also been some embarrassing
moments.
"When I came over here to
WCSX, I thought for sure I
was going to blow the call let-
ters because for seven years,
except for weekends at WILS,
the only call letters I ever
said, even in my sleep, were
WRIF," he said. "So, I was on
the air for about six weeks,
feeling relaxed and confident,
before my nightmare almost
came true. I said, `WRICSX,
The Motor City Bluez Project.'
"That wasn't as embarrass-
ing, however, as when I ac-
cidentally played the song

Pasman enjoys his job at WCSX, both on and off the air.

`Kokomo' by the Beach Boys
during 'The Motor City Bluez
Project' in place of the Ry
Cooder version of 'All Shook
Up,' another song from the
movie soundtrack, Cocktail.
When I introduced the Ry
Cooder song, the compact disc
was accidentally set on John
Cougar Mellencamp's 'Rave
On,' which wasn't a bad song
to play on the show. Realizing
I was playing Mellencamp
when I should have been play-
ing Cooder, I jokingly banged
my hand on the counter and
the compact disc jumped to
`Kokomo,' which definitely
does not belong on a program
that features blues music ex-
clusively."
Although Pasman has a
deep passion for the blues
genre, he said he enjoys other
kinds of music as well.

"I really have a hard time
picking a favorite genre of
music because I love music so
much," he said. "I can
definitely go from Muddy
Waters to Beethoven to Van
Halen in 10 minutes and be a
happy guy."
Pasman admitted he is
satisfied with the road he
traveled to get where he is
today.
"I've had my own band, my
own record label and have
tried just about everything I
wanted to do," he said. "I've
done this before (program
directing), and it's a lot of fun.
It's involved with music and
media which have always
been important to me; plus it's
a good living. It's hard to say
for how long the job will be
fun, but for the next several
years I'll be doing this." ❑
