Dick Van Dyke - Flair - 1961
Dick was an announcer/host during WWII, can't confirm an AFRS assignment. Did you hear anything about that? Entertainment was in his blood and after the war there was a lot of local broadcasting and theater. In 1955 he first went to CBS. In 1960 starred in the Broadway "Bye Bye Birdie" before getting the Dick Van Dyke show.
Between those, Dick was doing "Flair" at ABC radio, the show sounded a lot like "Monitor" but with a Flair... We had it on AFRTS take a listen.
