Dale Dorman



Dale Dorman, who turned a goofy on-air persona and a passion for music into a Hall of Fame career, died Tuesday, Oct. 22, at his Tewksbury home, after a lengthy illness.
He was 71.
According to WCVB.com, Dorman was buried Friday, following a private service. There is no published obituary.
Dorman grew up in Hosmer, NY, where he got his start in local radio.
He came to Boston and began working at WRKO in 1968. It was there where "Uncle Dale" Dorman became a household name among New England Rock and Roll fans over the next decade.
He moved on to KISS-108, where he spent more than 20 years. He spent the last decade of his care at WODS.
In 2010, Dorman was inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
Dorman is also survived by his wife, Linda, a son, Scott, a daughter, Christina, a stepdaughter, Alissa, and their families.
According to WCVB.com, there will be a public memorial service for Dorman at a later date.
