Who were your favorite Anchorage Radio personalities?

We all remember listening to our radios at home, in the car and on those small portable transistor radios that we could carry in our pocket or purse. And we all had our favorite radio personalities.

So who were they and where are they now?

The following list will no doubt grow as visitors to Anchorage Memories (that's you) add their favorites to the list.

Remember, Anchorage radio personalities moved around to different radio stations, so if you have additional information, be sure and use the "Comments" section below to update this list.

A Note from Anchorage Memories

Wasn't Art Bell a nationally syndicated radio talk show host, and not a local Anchorage DJ?

To Our Anchorage Radio Personalities
by: Michael Hankins

Anchorage has, and has had, some great radio DJs.

They helped make those long, dark, winter-days and nights more palpable.

God bless them all!
