New York Legendary Jock Hank Spann Dies

The millions of New Yorkers remember the golden age of WWRL (1600 AM), when its playlist and personalities helped shape the direction of music for a whole generation.

One of the legendary disc jockeys of Soul 16, Hank Spann passed away late yesterday.

The circle of jocks at WWRL included
Gerry Bledsoe, Hank Spann, Bobby Jay, Gary Byrd, Eddie O'Jay, Enoch Gregory and many others.


  1. "Funky as a mah-skeeta's (mosquito)
    tweeter". I remember listening to Hank in the 70s on Super 16. There was NOBODY on the air quite like him, even today. One of a kind!

  2. Hank was the best DJ I've ever heard, and I've heard them all. Nobody else on WWRL could touch him, not even Frankie Crocker. RIP Hank.
