DAN DANIEL
WMCA NEW YORK
APRIL 22, 1963 (UNSCOPED)

Another "Good Guy" is gone.

Dan Daniel, who starred in afternoon drive at WMCA during its glory days of the '60s, died last week (6-21-16) at the age of 82. At WMCA, Daniel was part of an legendary air staff that included Joe O'Brien, Harry Harrison, Jack Spector and B. Mitchel Reed. Daniel later worked at WYNY, WHN and WCBS-FM before retiring in 2002. We remember the well-liked Daniel not just as a "Good Guy", but a great guy as well. R.I.P. Dan Daniel.

Enjoy Dan Daniel on WMCA from April 22, 1963 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week!
