DAVE DIAMOND KBLA Los Angeles December 27, 1965 (UNSCOPED)
He was the second jock heard on Boss Radio KHJ and the first to depart the legendary station.
After The Real Don Steele debuted Boss Radio at 3 p.m. on April 27, 1965, Diamond kept the ball rolling with his 6-9 p.m. show. But the native of Howard, South Dakota, wasn't long for KHJ - he was gone after four months and was at Los Angeles rival KBLA by the end of the year. Diamond went to to many other stations, including San Francisco's KFRC, before retiring in 1982 to go into teaching. He died in 2014, aged 77.
Enjoy Dave Diamond on KBLA from December 27, 1965 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
Thanks to Tom Howard for this great aircheck!
