Condolences to family and friends of longtime MICHIGAN radio engineer DON MCCOMB, who died WEDNESDAY of cancer in FLUSHING, MI at 76. MCCOMB worked at WTRX-A/FLINT, WSGW-A/SAGINAW, and other stations in the state, retiring in 1998.
In the FLINT JOURNAL, former WTRX host DAVE BARBER, now at CAPITOL TV in PROVIDENCE, called MCCOMB "a real pro... He made us sound a little better than we probably were." WHNN/FLINT morning man JOHNNY BURKE called MCCOMB "the last of a dying breed... he used to do his own sound effects. He would be the guy banging coconuts together or rattling metal to make it sound like thunder."
