Irv Homer died a couple of days ago. He was a talk radio host for many years in Philadelphia, not to mention a bar owner and entrepreneur. I first heard him on the air in the early 1990′s on station WWDB, an FM talk radio station at the time. Irv wasn’t afraid to speak his mind and when DB, as the station was known, went to a music format he was sorely missed. Irv went to a few other stations after that. I had the pleasure to meet him a few times. He was an irascible character but one with a healthy dose of common sense.
So, rest in peace, Irv.
