Dale Dorman’s 45 year career in radio did not start in Boston but for anyone that has ever turned on the radio in New England his iconic voice and razor sharp wit were instantly recognizable. Dale was born in 1943 near Syracuse NY and it didn’t take long for him to figure out that he wanted to be behind the microphone. At the young age of five Dale heard a radio broadcast and once his mom explained how it all worked-he instantly decided that this was what he wanted to do- and he never looked back. At his first on air gig Dale, having no demo tape, went on the air for about 20 minutes and was hired on the spot. During his four decade career in radio Dorman worked for stations from California to Boston, working overnights at first, and readily admitting that he was horrible when he first started out; but with Dale’s sense of humor, impeccable timing, and of course that wit, it didn’t take him long to get better at his craft. He worked for WOLF in Syracuse and KFRC in San Francisco for two years when station management suggested to Dale that he do mornings; and in August of 1968 he landed the gig at WRKO and the legend of “Uncle Dale” was born in Boston.
