A Longtime Rock Radio Morning Man Is Mourned


In an era when Don Geronimo and Mike O’Meara were making waves in Washington for their on-air antics at WAVA and, on a much tamer scale, Mark & Brian ruled Los Angeles Rock radio’s wake-up choices, Bob Mason and Bill Sheehan were perhaps right down the middle between crass and class.

From 1980 through the 1990s, Mason and Sheehan attracted scores of listeners from Saugerties to Saratoga Springs on WPYX-FM “PYX106” in Albany, and later on now-defunct WXCR-FM 102.3. Now, Capitaland is mourning the loss of Mason, who has died at the age of 72.

RBR+TVBR OBSERVATION: Our editor-in-chief remembers growing up with Mason and Sheehan up against Todd Pettingill.
