My 3 favorite morning DJs of all time

The gentleman on top is Herb Oscar Anderson who is actually a friend on Facebook. He is best known for being the "Morning Mayor" on WABC from 1960-68. Back in those days AM radio reigned supreme and at 20% of radio listeners tuned in to WABC.
Harry Harrison is in the middle. He did 10 AM - 1 PM on WMCA before he was the morning man at WABC from 1968-79. He worked on morning drive at WCBS-FM from 1980-2003. I was disappointed that Harry did not come back when WCBS-FM returned in 2007. I certainly hope that Harry is enjoying his retirement.
My New York friends (except for Alan Berman) likely don't recognize the man wearing a sailor 's hat. He is Rhode Island's Salty Brine who worked mornings at WPRO-AM from 1942-1993. I listened to Salty when I was a student at the University of Rhode Island from 1972-74. Everybody in the state loved Salty. Alan attended another school in RI in the early 70s when he also listened to Salty.
