Ginny and I were terribly saddened to learn of the passing of Earl Williams today, one of WDAY Radio’s best and brightest. Earl is probably best known as one-half of the Earl & Don Show on WDAY, Don being Don Dresser.
Even as a snarky teenager, more into rock music rather than ‘DAY’s middle of the road format, Earl & Don were “must” listening for me. Listening to them, I remember thinking that is how you do that.
Ginny and I got to know Earl only recently at a couple of WDAY alum lunches in Fargo. His Queen Elizabeth “pull my finger” story had me nearly on the floor.
Visitation will be from 9 – 10 am Friday, followed by a memorial service at 10 am at Hope Lutheran Church – South Campus in Fargo.
