>> Yup - he worked at the original WHAV 1490 right out of high school in 1953, went to Korea for two years, then spent the rest of the fifties at WNHC in New Haven before KLIF hired him in 1959 and the rest was history.
Hmmmm...do you think he had to UN-learn his Boston accent...or acquire a Southern accent? 😉
In any airchecks I have heard, I don't detect a Southern accent....wonder if Texans think he has a Boston accent?
Or maybe he acquired what we used to call the "general American accent".
