Goodbye, Dr. Don

Okay, he had nothing to do with liberal radio, but he was one of the funniest damn air personalities in broadcast history. Dr. Don Rose had a way of making the absolute worst one liners (which he fired off in heavy rapid succession complete with non-stop outrageous sound effects) make listeners keel over in gut-busting laughter. I listened to him occasionally when I was growing up in Northern California (though I was more of an Alex Bennett fan), but as juvenile as he was, Dr. Don was a mad genius. He will be sorely missed.
