"Bill Ballance, a radio personality whose bold 1970s talk show tackled relationships and sex and helped pave the way for today's shock jocks, has died at age 85. (His show "Feminine Forum") provoked anger among women's rights activists, who accused him of exploiting callers." 

AP's article mentions that his show was a forerunner for "shock
jocks" like Stern and Leykis; and that he caused more controversy when he sold nude photos of Dr. Laura.
