Tom Shannon had the rare distinction of jocking at three different stations twice.

Shannon began his "triple play" at WGR, where he jocked in the early '60s and then again in the late '80s as morning man.

He was also at
WKBW in the early '60s following his time at WGR. He resurfaced again at WKBW-WWKB in the mid-'80s.

Shannon was also at CKLW twice, from 1964 to 1969 and again from 1976 into the early '80s.

The popular jock died May 26, 2021 at the age of 82.

Also heard on this aircheck are newsman Keith Radford (who would later become a long-time anchor at Channel 7 in Buffalo)

and long-time 'CK traffic reporter
Jo Jo Shutty-MacGregor.
