Jerry G

Jerry initially did nights with the 'Late Date Show' on WPGC in 1961. Later that year he succeeded Pat McCoy in mornings, a role he continued in until leaving the station for KYW in Cleveland in 1963.

In 1964 and 1965 he toured with the Beatles as a roving reporter for NBC & Group W stations to cover their concerts coast to coast.

For many years he and his wife own and operated two restaurants: The Greek Islands Cafe and Asaggio Pizza Pasta in San Diego's Seaport Village. He also voice tracked for Chicago's 'Real Oldies 1690' as well as having been inducted into the Ohio Radio Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Sadly, Jerry passed away on September 15, 2013. He was 77.
