Harry Harrison was in radio for over a half-century, including more than 45 years in New York.
During his time in the top market (WMCA, WABC, and WCBS-FM), Harrison proved his staying power with each new gig outlasting the previous one.
That was then and this is now.
The retired radio voice, last heard regularly in 2005, hasn’t kept up with the industry changes.
“I don’t listen to the radio that much anymore,” Harrison admits. “I don’t know much what’s happening in radio today. …If I hit the radio button it’s mainly to listen to the news now.”
Harrison discusses voice-tracking and the lack of personality radio after the jump.
