Dan Ingram: The New York Times Obituary

I'm still thinking about the late Dan Ingram today, a couple of days after the legendary New York disc jockey passed away at his Florida home at the age of 83.

I was hoping the New York Times would publish a formal obituary that would really capture Mr. Ingram's influence on radio announcers who followed him, and the Times has done that in today's edition.  The headline reads:  "Dan Ingram, Irreverent Disc Jockey, is Dead at 83."

"He was a quick-thinking, somewhat bawdy jester who mocked songs, singers, sponsors and the weather," writes Richard Sandomir. "His wisecracks and double entendres rippled through the air."

Here is the Dan Ingram obituary in today's New York Times.
