Dale Tucker, 73.

tucker-daleI’m saddened to report the death of one of radio’s true gentlemen, Dale Tucker, who lost a battle with cancer at the age of 73. Beginning his career as an air personality up and down the dial, culminating at stations in New York and Washington, DC, Dale became a fixture on the vendor side, selling everything from equipment to jingles to Radio Ink. Editor’s $0.02: I will miss Dale’s booming voice and boundless enthusiasm for whatever he was representing—and all the more for the medium he loved.
