AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #977 - Week of February 18, 2018

JACK GALE
WAYS Charlotte, N.C.
October 3, 1967

One of radio's great entertainers left us with the passing of Jack Gale.

 In an era where personality was king, Gale was the crown prince. He started in radio in 1944 at WBTM Danville, Va., and went on to work in the major markets of Cleveland (WSRS), Baltimore (WITH), and Charlotte (WAYS). Gale was involved in radio ownership and also managed several singing artists, including Johnny "Mr. Bass Man" Cymbal. He died January 23, 2018, at the age of 92.

Enjoy Jack Gale on WAYS from October 3, 1967
... in the Aircheck of the Week!

Thanks to Don Shuttleworth for this great aircheck!
