Alan Burke

Talk show host from United States of America

Alan S. Burke (September 15, 1922 - August 25, 1992) was an American conservative television and radio talk show host who was on the air primarily in New York City from 1966 to 1969 on WNEW (now Fox Broadcasting O&O WNYW). He was born in Richmond, Virginia in 1922. Burke was a pioneer of the confrontational style where he would attack or insult his guest and plant ringers in the audience who would attack the guest. Burke had programs on various Miami, Florida radio stations during much of the 1970s and '80's, where he continued to employ his confrontational style. Burke's best known caller was known only as "Raymond", a presumed burn-out who spouted comically clever poetry, often espousing the virtues of his hero, Alan Burke.  ( Wikipedia article )
