Among the artists that Alexenburg worked directly with were Boston, Meat Loaf, Charlie Daniels and Michael Jackson. Under his helm, Michael Jackson’s Thriller became and still is the best-selling album of all time.
Larry Dunn of Massapequa Park currently serves as Senior Vice President, Advertising for Newsday Media Group and is also an on-air radio announcer with SiriusXM Radio.

The new Board Members will join the Hall at an exciting time in their history as the organization works to build their first home and museum in the new Wyandanch Village redevelopment.

Not only do they each bring an extensive amount of credibility to the table, but they all have a deep passion for music and for what we look to accomplish as an organization in the near future,” says Hall of Fame Chairman, Ernie Canadeo.
