Longtime WEIM/WPKZ radio personality Ray C. (Chalifoux) has passed away
according to an announcement on the WPKZ Facebook page. No further details
were given. Ray started with WEIM back when Norman Knight owned the station
in it's top 40 heyday. He was morning host for many years, working for 4
different owners of the station. He semi-retired a few years ago, but
remained with the station, hosting an short lived evening talk show. He then
became co-host of the Saturday morning Smart Shopper show, making his last
live on-air appearance on that show last Saturday 3/5. He also filled in
occasionally on the morning show, in fact he filled in for a couple of weeks
when the man who replaced him, Ben Parker, left to take a job at WBZ. He
also was still doing production work for some of WPKZ's advertisers.
