Northwest Radio Personality Big Dan Murphy Dies

Big Dan Murphy, a Spokane radio personality has passed away.  Murphy, worked in Walla Walla for radio station KUJ using the name Wee Willie Winkle.  His next stop was Tri-Cities where he used the name Dancin' Dan Murphy.  I did not know him well, but he was a good friend of my brother, Danny.  The two had both appeared in the WWCC production of Arcenic And Old Lace.   Dan and I traded e-mails a while back after connecting on a radio history site.  I found this video of Dan on the air in Spokane, click here.
