Radio Spot Voice Legend Jan Gabriel Passes
January 11, 2010 at 2:30 PM (PT)
Condolences to the friends and family of JAN C. GABRIEL, who passed away. GABRIEL possessed one of the signature radio voices in the '60s; he was the first announcer to come up with the phrase, "SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY!" for the US 30 DRAG STRIP and SANTE FE SPEEDWAY TV & radio commercials that aired in the MIDWEST.
According to CHICAGOLANDRADIO&MEDIA.COM, the phrase would also be used in many other markets (GABRIEL sopmetimes did the vocals as well). It often can be heard TODAY in Monster Truck spots.
