AIRCHECK OF THE WEEK

Edition #1065 - Week of November 10, 2019

DON BURNS
KRLA Los Angeles
November 18, 1970

Don Burns loved the Southland.

Born in Santa Monica, the man with the awesome set of pipes spent most of his career in southern California, with stops at major Los Angeles stations like KRLA, KISS, KIQQ, KOST, KUTE and KTWV. Burns, whose career began in 1963, also jocked at KKUA Honolulu and KOL and KJR Seattle before settling in Los Angeles in 1970. He's not be confused with Don Berns of WKBW and CFNY fame, or Donny Burns of CHUM and CKGM.

Enjoy Don Burns on KRLA from November 18, 1970 (UNSCOPED) ... in the Aircheck of the Week.

Thanks to Tom Howard for this great aircheck!
