Dick Lamb FINAL SHOW, 92.9 The Wave WVBW Norfolk | January 11 2019
It was 1955 when Dick Lamb broke into radio broadcasting at a station in Baltimore while he was still in school and working part-time as a grocery store bag boy. Little did Lamb know, at the time, he would spend the next 54 years behind a microphone, most of that time on wake up duty. If you grew up in the Tidewater area in the late 1950s, 60s, & 70s, you would have heard Lamb as a Top 40 jock on 1310 WGH. WGH was THE dominant Top 40 station in the market for several decades. Lamb was heard across Hampton Roads hosting “Breakfast Bunch” on 101.3 2WD WWDE for more than a quarter century, from the late 1970s, through the 1990s. Lamb launched the station, and was program director as well. Dick them moved across town to host morning drive at 92.9 The Wave WVBW, where he was also part owner. He remained until his partial retirement in in January 2019. This aircheck features Dick Lamb’s Final show on The Wave. There are not a lot of guys in thier 80s hosting morning shows on contemporary music stations, but Dick does a fine job, and you’d think he was a few decades young than he actually is. After almost 65 years in broadcasting, Lamb continues with some of his management & ownership duties. On a personal note. I directly competed against Lamb for a few years when I was on The Z Morning Zoo at Z104 WNVZ in Norfolk. Dick is one of the nicest, and most personable people I have ever met. In the years I was there, I never heard a negative word spoken about him. I’m hoping he enjoys his semi retirement, with continued good health! -Ellis
