May 18, 2015 at 7:20 AM (PT)
ALL ACCESS sends condolences to family and friends of COUNTRY RADIO HALL OF FAME member GWYNETH “DANDALION” SEESE, who passed away SATURDAY (5/16).
SEESE started her radio career in the '50s, then left the business and joined the US POSTAL SERVICE, working a graveyard shift. She was a frequent contributor to trucker magazines, which led to a friendship with BIG JOHN TRIMBLE, host of a RICHMOND, VA overnight trucker show. After filling in for him occasionally, SEESE, whose CB Radio handle was DANDALION, went back to radio fulltime at WIOV/EPHRATA, PA in 1979. She eventually moved to WCAT/WRKZ/HARRISBURG, PA, handling overnights and collecting numerous industry awards, including ACM Air Personality of the Year (1989) and ultimately, induction into the COUNTRY RADIO HALL OF FAME (1999).
There will be a visitation with the family on SATURDAY, MAY 23, at 10a (ET), followed by a memorial service at 11a, at the CANADENSIS UNITED METHODIST CHURCH; located at the corners of Routes 390 and 447, CANADENSIS, PA 18325.
