A Tribute to John Mack Flanagan

1400 Stamford WSTC

John Mack Flanagan
John Mack Flanagan was one of the great broadcasters from the West Coast. Legendary, in the minds of many people, including his peers in the broadcasting industry, his many friends and his fans in the Bay Area. It’s only fitting on the occasion of his passing on Saturday, March 31st, 2018 (Corrected), that we do a little something to pay tribute to a man who meant so much to so many.

The following is a new aircheck that I compiled partly from my own files and from the archives of this website. Much of it is an interview I did with John on 1400 WSTC Stamford, CT on June 7, 2017 during my live show to talk about his book, Tight and Bright – available on Amazon.com. It then continues with an aircheck of him from 10/15/76 on KFRC.

I sincerely hope this touches his many fans and friends who miss his voice.
