PLAY KRTH Los Angeles Robert W. Morgan Retrospective (37:26)

Introduced by Gary Owens and narrated by Dick Clark, this retrospective includes airchecks from KMAK, KEWB, KHJ and comments from Bill Drake and Don Imus.

The quick-witted Morgan has always been the hardest working jock in show business…arriving at work in the pre-dawn hours to scour wire services along with local and national newspapers, review prep material and gear up for the day’s performance.

Like his former program director Ron Jacobs once taught him: Preparation, Concentration and Moderation is the best offense in the battle for the most competitive radio market in the country.

Robert’s impeccable sense of timing, acerbic wit and his unique ability to talk one-on-one to his audience for over four decades has earned him the title of being a "jock’s jock".
He has influenced generations of radio people worldwide striving to be a cut above the rest. ROBERT W. MORGAN TODAY



For the millions of Los Angeles listeners who, for over three decades, have started their day with a "Good Morgan", Robert W. Morgan's retirement marks the end of an era…and a way of life.


Morning drive radio will never be the same without the man we’ve grown to love and respect as the BEST BOSS JOCK IN THE BIZ !
