Former WOL Host Bernie McCain Dies


McCain was 75 and had left the station about a year ago due to his declining health. He was on the station, now owned by Radio One in Washington D.C., for 15 years. McCain came to WOL from WRC in 1981. He had been at WRC for over 15 years before making the move. McCain died of renal failure. McCain was WOL's first Program Director.

With all due respect to and God bless Mr. McCain, I agree with the other comment that McCain was not WOL's first PD. The station became WOL in 1951 and was a top rated Soul/R&B station in the 60s & 70s. I grew up listening to it.

First Program Director? How can that possibly be?? For instance, how about their great years under Sonderling as Soul Radio?

Maybe he was WOL's first PD in 1981...
