NYC Radio Host Jerry Marshall Dies at 91

The New York Times today published an obituary for mid-century AM radio fixture Jerry Marshall.

To quote directly from the piece, "During more than 30 years on the air, Mr. Marshall hosted hit shows like 'Music Hall' and 'The Make-Believe Ballroom' on WNEW and 'Record Room' on WMGM, as well as shows on WINS, WNBC and WCBS. His 'Jerry Marshall Show' was eventually syndicated in cities along the East Coast."

Marshall is among that ever-diminishing group of radio "hosts" whose job was to chat and play records on-air in the years before that position came to be called "disc jockey."

There aren't too many of 'em left!
