West Coast Broadcaster Art Gilmore Dies at 98

Early broadcaster Art Gilmore has died.

The obituary in today's New York Times mentions that Mr. Gilmore was born in Tacoma, WA and that he worked in radio in the Pacific Northwest before heading to Los Angeles and the Big Time.

Dave Richardson's Puget Sounds (Pacific Northwest broadcast history book) provides a few more details about Gilmore's work here:

"Tacoma-born Art Gilmore started in radio as a singer on his own show over KVI in 1934. He worked as an announcer on KOL before moving South to Hollywood . . ."
