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 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.

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 lives of people who are in Recovery for the rest of his years.
