In this exhibit we present one of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s most colorful radio personalities, Louis Alfred Tarone, better known as L.A. Tarone filling in for WILK afternoon host Steve Corbett. Tarone got his first taste of radio at WRKC, Wilkes College’s campus radio station. Throughout his career he worked in almost every music format but he is likely best remembered for his work in talk radio.
In this aircheck we find Tarone holding down the afternoon drive spot on Wilkes Barre talker WILK, a shift he would eventually take over full-time. In this program, Tarone talks about the Bill DeWeese bonus controversy as well as takes calls on whether or not the government should be able to mandate the purchase of insurance. You will hear tons of callers as well as L.A. Tarone doing what he did best, presenting great talk radio.
Sadly, L.A. Tarone lost his battle with lung cancer on June 25th, 2017.
