Sandy Beach Among Buffalo Broadcasting Giants
Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN) - The Giants of Buffalo Broadcasting were out last night at The Buffalo History Museum, and WBEN's Sandy Beach was among them.
The Buffalo Broadcasters Association kicked off a monthly event at the museum by presenting some of the biggest names in Buffalo radio broadcasting. On the stade in the museum's auditorium with Sandy were Danny Neaverth, Shane, Joey Reynolds, and Stan Roberts. Roberts continues to work part-time for Entercom Radio, owner of WBEN, as a sales executive.
It was probably winter in the mid 70's, Dan Neaverth was D J at K B,thousands of WNY kids were listening to their radios for a report that schools were closed because of the snowstorm. Danny came on the air chuckling because the station received a phone call from a youngster trying to disguise his voice, saying, "This is the superintendent of schools. All Buffalo, private and Pinocchio schools are closed today." I believe the youngster meant Parochial schools.I think of this each and every winter during school closings.
Lookin' Good Guys!
Lots of laughs remembered from these entertainers! Great to see you all reunited!
They all played a big part of my youth (and theirs)at "KB".
They are the best of the best in radio! And yes they are legends of the air. Thanks for the great memories, Artie.
Read this on the air, The “Best of the Best” here in Buffalo !!!!
We, here in Buffalo, have been and are presently “Blessed” with “Legendary" radio personalities throughout all of the local channels we receive AM-FM. I have listened to all of the stations and have listened to all of these terrific radio personalities we are speaking of today since the years of 1974 until present. These past 12 years, WBEN was actually my primary listening station. I enjoy all of you guy’s and somehow I feel that I know all of you, although we have never met. I’m getting a “shiver up and down my leg” just knowing how much fun, gut wrenching laughs and admiration you must have all felt just being together and enjoying each others company. The best of all worlds, God bless all of you and keep making us laugh throughout these insane and difficult times, Gary Sobolewski email@example.com
Where is Ron Dobson !!!!!
I agreed with him about only 50% of the time, BUT, Ron Dobson was a good engaging, colorful and progressive person that I actually enjoyed immensely. Why isn’t he on the air on your station anymore? I feel he was a “Jewel-in-the rough” personality for you @ WBEN and he should have been saved and preserved. Marketing Department: I think you may have missed the boat on RD. You should "get him back" for all of us here in Buffalo NY, Gary Sobolewski, Lancaster.
