Dale Dorman, Afternoon drive on WXKS-FM Kiss 108 Boston | 1992

We’re talking a Boston radio LEGEND! Dale Dorman’s career in Boston started at WRKO, having come from San Francisco’s ‘Big 610′ KFRC. After WRKO, he was the morning guy for a time at Fairbanks Communications’ WVBF – in it’s subdued top 40 incarnation as F-105. By 1981, Dorman was firmly entrenched as Kiss-108’s afternoon guy, a position he held until 2004 – where he was considered by many to be the oldest Top 40 deejay left in America!

Enough about that. Dale can be heard now at WODS “Oldies 103”. We can think of no other best suited to play the music that he knows all so well…

Kiss-108!

  1. I’ve always enjoyed Uncle Dale as he came to be known. I first heard him when I visited Boston in the late ’60s on WRKO. His humor is priceless and he still knows how to get it done.

  4. I got the extreme pleasure to intern for Dale in 84-85. What a blast. He is just as funny off air as on air.

    At the time I was making very little cash and Dale would frequently buy me lunch, dinner etc. He was a very generous man. I will always cherish the months that I got be his intern!
