Jumpin' Zach Flash

Be sure to join me, Jumpin’ Zach Flash, for Central New York’s Greatest Hits every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Here are some things you may not know about me. My favorite musician is John Lennon (this explains my round glasses—it's NOT because I am a Harry Potter fan). My favorite John Lennon song has to be “Give Peace a Chance.” My favorite Beatles songs are “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Come Together.” My hobby is photography, and you can see a lot of my work right here on this website—search “Zach’s Weekly Snaps” to check out my photos.
