Nataliia Kondrateva

Nataliia’s House was created in the Name of Nataliia Kondrateva. A beautiful, kind, caring and generous woman who had the desire and propensity to help as many less fortunate people as she could. Nataliia had a deep and inspirational love for the arts and taught voice lessons in a private school and was a certified choir conductor. She found great joy in attending the theatre, the opera, museums and galleries anytime the opportunity would arise.

It is in the honor and spirit of Nataliia that we have formed this organization to assist the less fortunate where we can. Nataliia’s House will assist with food, clothing and shelter for abused women and children, veterans and others, as well as develop after school programs in the arts for the less fortunate.

Zach Martin

Zach Martin a descendant of Zachary Taylor, the 12th President of the United States, is a radio personality and voice actor who gets excited about the complete line Rainex Wipers, synthetic oil, spark plugs, fuel injectors, horse-power, cars, trucks, motorcycles, hot rods, rat rods and racing. Zach grew up in garages and loves the smell of tires and gasoline-it is probably not a good idea to inhale that stuff, so don’t try it at home. Besides being a racing and auto enthusiast, Zach is currently the Creative Services Director for WFAN.

Zach has been a fixture in New York radio for over 3 decades, and his voice is a familiar one. Not only did Zach get to work with the Legendary Scott Muni for almost a decade, he cut his teeth in rock radio. If you were to ask Zach, out of all the interviews of Rock Legends he got to do, and which person was his favorite, he would tell you, “They were all special. It’s hard to pick when you interview the greats like Ringo Starr, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page or Yoko Ono, just to name a few, but my favorite bands are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, AC/DC and a whole bunch of Country Artists.” Zach Martin is a graduate of St. John’s University, holds a Master’s Degree from New York Theological Seminary and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. He is married to his sweetheart Emily, and he has a daughter Sophie who can’t stay away from the race track! It looks like the racing bug has spread to another generations of Martins.

JJ Kennedy

JJ Kennedy is a radio personality and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. JJ worked in NYC radio for 39 years doing all genres of music getting her start from radio icon Hal Jackson at the (almost) total Black experience in sound, WBLS. It was the era where disco was first being introduced to NY radio. Other genres included Big Bands at WNEW, Country music at WKHK, Top 40 at WPLJ, Lite rock at WLTW and Talk radio as the sidekick to the legendary John Gambling at WOR. During those years calls from listeners to her for advice prompted her to get her MS in Marriage and Family Therapy from Iona College. JJ is licensed and a Clinical member of the AAMFT and has now been in private practice for 15 years.

Current volunteer work includes reading one day a week to the children at PS130 in Chinatown and she is the Chaplain for a local chapter of the American Legion Women’s Auxiliary.

JJ enjoys her family…hubby Charlie the train engineer (choo choo!) and is the proud mom of Office Matt of the NYPD.

Therapy for JJ is swimming, pole dancing and country line stomping.

“I am truly blessed to do what I love and enjoy the adventures I continue to discover.”

Stephen E Roy

For most of his radio career, Steve went by ” Steve Roy” ‘ cos that’s what his name was/is. Everyone thought it to be a “radio name”, you know…2 first names?. But after a brief flirtation with “Raymond” (think) his Mom and Dad settled on Steve.

His career really started in college where he majored in French, but stumbled upon the campus radio station. There, he found the thing he loved to do and somehow with the help of The Almighty and a penchant for finding luck, climbed from college to Buffalo and then on to NYC radio in 1983. In January of 1984 Steve, along with many other talented and legendary NYC radio performers presided over one of the most successful radio stations in not only New York, but in the United States for many years. 106.7 LITE- FM, WLTW. Steve likened the stations’ spirit as “anything but work. It was like going to a clubhouse every day”

But the name. Late in the game, mimicking a Thurston Howell III affectation, Steve called himself Stephen E Roy on the air and all of a sudden there was a sudden interest in his name. “What does the”E” stand for? In Steve’s personal orbit, where no one really cared about it to begin with, they simply call him “SER”.

SER is descended from not just one, but two signers of The Declaration of Independence.

His grandfather, a cop in Brooklyn in the Roaring Twenties, arrested Mae West during Prohibition. And received a personalized postcard in return inscribed with ” Come up and see me sometime” Grandma Roy never knew. Different time: different sensibilities.

Steve has completed 6 NYC marathons.

He is married with 4 daughters and 2 grandchildren.

Steve is a CASAC-T in the state of New York and plans on being involved in the lived if people who are in Recovery for the rest of his years.
