Dick Sinclair 1925-2016


The world has lost a wonderful person. Dick Sinclair passed away on October 14, 2016 at the age of 91. He lived polkas and for 6 decades kept the Polka Party on the air.  In the 1950s and 60s Polka Party ran on AFRTS.  Dick's real claim to fame for us would be he was in the first class off WWII broadcasters, training at Fox Studios for the brand new AFRS.  Dick did his WWII time at the station on Guadalcanal.  I really wish I had had a chance to speak with him,  We've lost a piece of history and a great broadcaster,
