Today’s breed of radio listeners is likely unaware of Al Brady Law. But Law had three stints in New York radio from the late 1960s to the early 1980s. Law died Monday of a brain tumor in a New Hampshire nursing home. Reports put his age at 67.
His work was varied, from air personality to programmer. His start in New York took place as WOR-FM evening jock in 1969.
A year later, even though he bolted for Miami, Law was heard filling in on WWDJ, primarily on nights.
After some work in Denver, Law was back at WWDJ on a full-time basis. This time, he was like a player/manager in baseball. Law was named the station’s program director, along with his air work.
Now that management was agreeing with him, Law wanted more.
Following the short gig at ‘WDJ, Law appeared at WXLO where he was hired solely as the “99X” program director.
However, Law’s dual hats would return in a big way at WNBC Radio. In 1974, he was named a joint assistant program director and air personality. Later that year, Law took over as program director but only briefly before resuming his APD/weekend air work. He remained at the NBC flagship until 1976.
