THE SOUNDS OF WARM (PART 2)
KING ARTHUR KNIGHT
This video is a small compilation of the work of King Arthur Knight who did a few stints at WARM. Knight was one of the first jocks to arrive and set the standard for others that followed. Knight came from WICK, left WARM in the early 60s to work at the Susquehanna based station WHLO in Akron Ohio and the moved on to WICE in Providence, another station in the chain. He also worked at WMEX, in Boston. At some point in this taping, he mixed up the frequencies when on WARM to 1290 AM.
Knight then went on to WPRO in Providence where he was named to the Rhode Island Radio Hall of Fame.
His real last name was Osterhout and he passed away in February 2016. He is buried in Clarks Summit.
The sound archives come from Joe Middleton, Duplication was done by Bobby Day of WARM and Arena fame and post production was done by some very good people. (Please keep in mind that this is a fifty year old tape of an on air presentation).
