is the place to find sound files and other items that document and celebrate the genius and creativity of Pittsburgh radio personality Rege Cordic, plus additional items about Rege's co-workers and collaborators.

Who was Rege Cordic and what did he do?

The Cordic & Company program, broadcast first on WWSW, later on KDKA-AM from 6-10AM in the morning and, after a time in Los Angeles, returning to WTAE radio, brought laughter to area residents as they started their busy days in a great American city experiencing its renaissance during the 1950's and 60's. A Pittsburgh native, Rege Cordic was the voice of a city with a rich history and diverse cultural heritage he could draw upon for his program.

To many, Rege Cordic did more to inspire and entertain Pittsburgh than any other person during his time in the Steel City. His glorious baritone voice greeted the early morning risers with a radio experience they grew to love and wouldn't miss.

Rege could poke fun at Pittsburgh because he and his listeners were part of a radio community tied together by geography, culture and purpose. Cordic & Company listeners grew up waiting for the adventures of Carmen Monoxide the punster, Mr. Murcheson the boss, Omicron and Nudnicron from Venus, Brunhilda the larger-than-life (and larger than almost anyone) woman with her own entrance door, Louie Adamchevitz the garbage man and Max Korfendigas the always-inebriated golf pro, to name a few of the cast of characters created by Rege and a talented group of collaborators.

Look around, download some samples of Rege's comedy, and let me know if you have any suggestions for making the site more useful for you.  This is both a labor of love and a work in progress.

DON'T THROW REGE AWAY!  Do you have some old recordings of Rege on reel-to-reel tapes, CD's or other media, but don't have the equipment to make digital transfers of the recordings?  Before you pitch those old tapes into the trash, PLEASE contact me HERE!  I have a reel-to-reel tape deck and a tape cassette deck, and can help preserve the material you have for addition to this site. If I don't have the right equipment for your particular media, I'll try to find someone who can do the transfer.

And if you have any old friends who may have listened to Rege when they were in Pittsburgh (I'm told he had an 85% share of the morning radio audience at one time), ask them if they know of any recordings.  Time may be running out to save these recordings for posterity.  You can help us preserve the Cordic & Company legacy.

Many visitors to this web site have graciously offered additional recordings to me to digitalize and put up on this site. They've sent cassettes, reel-to-reel tapes and CD's to me, and I am committed to making this new material available to all.

I will also be creating an image gallery to show pictures of Rege Cordic through the years in all the various endeavors he undertook.

This web site is dedicated to Ric Collins, whose personal Rege Cordic web site was the inspiration for the site you are visiting now. Before his untimely death, Ric provided me with the Cordic & Company material he had, and urged me to find a permanent home for it on the web. Like me, Ric felt that the legacy of Rege Cordic was a rich one, that should be available for all to share.

Ric, this is for you...
