Danny Stiles Passes Away at 87

Longtime New York area radio host and oldies progenitor Danny Stiles died in Manhattan this past Friday (March 11, 2011), according to an in the New York Times.

Mr. Stiles first took to the airwaves in 1947 at Newark, New Jersey's WHBI, adopting the sobriquet "Midnight Dan" for an overnight rhythm and blues show. He then moved to WNJR to host "The Kit Kat Club."

But it was with nostalgia that Mr. Stiles ultimately made his broadcasting mark, and nostalgia that kept him on the air and popular with a certain nostalgic slice of the listening audience up until his death. As he told the Times for an earlier story, “In their minds I am speaking into a circular, spring-suspension carbon microphone.”
