AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #1053 - Week of August 18, 2019

DON BERNS
WDRC Hartford
August 26, 1967 (UNSCOPED)

One of the great personality jocks, Don Berns was heard all over North America.

Berns, son of a West Hartford dentist, got his professional start at WICE Providence, R.I., before moving to the legendary WDRC. Berns would later jock in Los Angeles, San Diego, Buffalo, Kansas City and Pittsburgh before moving to Toronto in the '80s. He was the image voice of Global television and TSN in Canada, and a major force on the Toronto rave scene. Berns left behind a great legacy in broadcasting when he died March 1, 2015.

Enjoy Don Berns on WDRC from August 26, 1967 ... in the Aircheck of the Week.

Thanks to Joe Fazio for this great aircheck!
