FRANK BENNY WGR Buffalo, N.Y. March 25, 1982
A man who loved radio and golf in equal doses, Frank Benny spent more than 40 years behind the mic, and probably a few more on the links.
Born Frank Bianiak in Chicago in 1937, Frank Benny jocked in California, Oregon and Ohio before moving to Buffalo's WGR in 1966. He spent 19 years at 'GR, leaving the Buffalo radio scene in the late '90s for several stations in Florida. The personable , witty passed away in 2005 but not before leaving behind a great radio legacy.
From the Art Rockwood Collection, enjoy Frank Benny on WGR from March 25, 1982 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.
