Radio Legend Passes: Cleveland radio legend Joe Finan passed away. I worked with Joe for two years as his program director from 1981 to 1983 at the leading Country station in Cleveland, WHK. He was a consummate pro. A very talented, creative and versatile guy. As a young program director, I learned a great deal from him, especially about true personality radio. He knew then that great content between songs was going to get you further than playing jukebox radio. WHK in the early 80's was one of the last successful AM music stations because we had great personalities like Joe Finan. To read more about this radio legend click:

Joe left a great imprint on the Denver market at KTLN and later KTLK. I had the pleasure of working for him at 1280 in 1971. A great manager and top 40 jock, and a wonderfull man off the air.
