There's already a thread about the passing of Dan Ingram, but I thought a thread about him belonged in the NYC forum, considering how many years he spent on WABC and later on WCBS-FM.

Not too many of these legendary DJs left. Listened to Dan on my Panasonic transistor. In those days, anything made in Japan was considered to be cheap and junky.

OMG. I missed this. Dan Ingram, Cousin Brucie, Murray the K. Those were the days.

Only 83. He must have started out very young. I remember listening to him in the 70s.

Choked to death on a piece of steak.

Cousin Brucie is still on the air.

I met Murray the K and he lived up to his unpleasant reputation. However, he was very sick with cancer at the time and I didn't quite realize how ill he was.

I thought CB was dead. I worked with Murray the K with some of my friends in his office and at some of the shows he did. Never had a problem with him.

Was Ingram ever a DJ on the old WMGM, the original Rock-n-Roll station in NYC starting in 1956? I can still remember the jingle from the 50s: "WMGM will bring to you good music, news and the Yankees too, on 1050- WMGM- one oh five oh, one oh five oh."


WMGM went to easy listening in 1962 and thereafter through several incarnation and today it's WEPN, Hispanic sports radio station.

somewhat off topic. But how far back are we talking exactly?

Yeah, I remember listening to Dan Ingram and Cousin Brucie on WABC with my brother. He had his little tape recorder waiting for the latest hits from the Beatles, Stones, etc. They were iconic. To me, they made the late sixties and early seventies. I still remember my father at the wheel cruising in and out of NYC traffic in summer heat while sitting in the back seat listening to WABC. Ah, they were the days.
