RIP Joe Donovan

Post by amayo » Sun Jan 19, 2014 1:42 pm

Just got word that legendary Jock Joe Donovan has passed away. Donovan was a longtime overnight jock on 50,000 watt WHAS Radio for many years. I met Joe and got to know him a little when I first worked at WHAS. He left soon after that, but he was always fondly remembered by those who knew him. Joe had an encyclopedic musical memory, and the biggest record collection I've ever seen. Listeners in about 40 states would call and ask for songs to be played, and he never failed to find them. If he didn't have it that night, he'd get it aired the next night. RIP Joe.... :|

I don't think so. Joe was pretty much a Louisville guy.
