Spotlight on Don K Reed

Don K Reed worked as a DJ for WCBS-FM from 1972 until it was hijacked in June 2005. For most that time he worked on the light night or overnight shift. He was best known for hosting the Doo Wop Shop on Sunday evenings. For readers who are not oldies enthusiasts, Doo Wop was a vocal style of music that was popular in the 1950s and early 1960s. Please see the Wikipedia entry for a longer description.

When WCBS-FM was relaunched in July 2007 Don came back to host the radio greats show the last Sunday of every month. I am listening to Don right now. A few weeks ago I was pleasantly surprised to see a small picture of Don in a mural at Yesterday's diner in New Hyde Park. I hope that Don is enjoying his retirement. His loyal listeners welcome his monthly appearance on WCBS-FM.

Does anyone know Don's age? I was just curious.
