a number of us here remember shane from KGA in spokane circa 1968-1969
"The bombastic, yet personable Shane arrived on the Buffalo radio scene in 1973. He had worked at such stations as KPUG Bellingham, Wash., KGA Spokane, Wash., WLEE Richmond, Va., and KNAK Salt Lake City, but it was Buffalo where he really made his mark. For the better part of two decades, Shane would provide some memorable radio for listeners in Western New York and southern Ontario.
After a short stop at WYSL, Shane arrived at WGR in 1975. He would spend eight years in the 6-10 p.m. shift there, part of a superb on-air staff that also included Stan Roberts, Larry Anderson, Frank Benny, Tom Donahue and John Otto. As you'll hear on this aircheck, Shane did a personality-driven show that well suited the friendly style of WGR at the time.
Shane left 'GR in 1983, only to return to the station in afternoon drive from 1986 to 1989. He took a short-lived stab at midday talk at WKBW in 1993. Shane was also at CHSC St. Catharines, Ont. - albeit briefly - in the early '90s.
After a couple of failed attempts at running for Buffalo city council, Shane (real name Ron Gibson) left Buffalo in the 1990s. He did a stint in mornings at WLEE-FM Richmond in 1995. The last time he appeared on Buffalo radio was at a radio reunion on WHTT-FM in 1999, when he spent a Saturday afternoon reminiscing on-air about his Buffalo days."
here is a clip from WGR - maybe someone can confirm this is the
jon - your feature has this:
"Rumor has it he went to Top 40 CKXL in Calgary, to capitalize on KGA's listeners there, but no one has heard of him since."
Should that be updated?
