Dan Ingram, RIP

By Barry Skidelsy
EASL Chair, former Co-Chair EASL TV & Radio Committee

Legendary New York radio disc jockey and Long Island native Dan Ingram died at the age of 83. When inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2007, Dan was named "the best Top 40 DJ of all time." I -- and many other members of EASL, I suspect -- who remember listening to Dan during the W-A-Beatles-C heydays or during his later time on-air in NYC at WCBS-FM, do not dispute that honor and are saddened by his passing.

If you don't know about any of this (or even of you do), take a few minutes to check out this Newsday obit (https://www.newsday.com/entertainment/celebrities/dan-ingram-death-1.19424059), this post from the National Radio Hall of Fame (http://nationalradiohalloffame.com/dan_ingram.htm); and, this "scoped" behind-the-scenes air-check from 1992 while Dan was then on-air at WCBS-FM in New York City (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBr308F3lIA&feature=youtu.be).

Tight, baby, tight. Man, I miss those days. RIP Dan.
