A Mile High Farewell To ‘Sky Spy’ Don Martin

For Denver radio listeners, Don Martin was the “eye in the sky,” or, in local parlance, Denver’s “Sky Spy” over three decades. Martin died this week; he was believed to be in his 80s.

Local alternative weekly Westword paid tribute to Martin, who it says was “a giant of Denver broadcasting.”
