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."
