March 2, 2016 at 8:37 AM (PT)
Thanks to ART VUOLO for compiling this video tribute to legendary radio on-air personality CHARLIE TUNA, who passed away yesterday at the age of 71 (NET NEWS 3/1).
The clip includes footage from a 1978 profile piece done by KNBC-TV Channel 4 reporter KELLY LANG while CHARLIE at KTNQ-A (1020 TEN-Q). Also some rare KRLA video and footage from KBIG's GLENDALE and BURBANK studios taken between 1987 and 2005. It serves as a lasting legacy to one of radio's most remembered and legendary morning radio personalities
Writes VUOLO: "I first heard the former ART FERGUSON in the early '60s at 50 kw KOMA-AM 1520 in OKLAHOMA CITY. KKDJ, of course, evolved, into KIIS (102.7 FM). He was a good man. I hope you like the video."
