This is an email that we received in response to the post about Urban Radio Announcer’s becoming extinct.
It is ironic that in this story pictured is the “Record Rocker” the Legendary Frankie Crocker as one who epitomized creativity . Frankie was LOCAL and one of the GREATEST radio announcers to have ever lived. Frankie could make you feel like he was on the turntables right in your home. And it was his ambition that led to his “greatest mistake” of creating the “Urban” Jock title. In creating the Urban jock title which was only to make “SOUL” radio/SOUL DJ’s acceptable to the advertisers (money) Frankie in essence SOLD OUT the BLACK/SOUL RADIO DJ. An Urban Jock has NEVER been defined so how can the Urban jock become extinct? What is the Urban jock? Anyway.
