The Prince Is Gone...

I’m saddened to hear of the passing of Carter B. Smith, who died yesterday after a long illness.  As a legendary Bay Area radio personality for five decades, he often called himself  “The Prince Trapped Inside The Body of a Disc Jockey.”  He ingratiated a couple of generations of listeners with his wit, intelligence, warmth and class.  Hear some vintage audio on the Bay Area Hall of Fame site.  And I’ll share a wonderful visit Ben Fong-Torres had with Carter a couple of years ago here. bayarearadio photo
