Oklahoma’s greatest radio and TV broadcaster, and a legend in his own time, passed away this week in Oklahoma City. One of my first memories of Danny Williams was watching him on our black and white TV when he did his 3-D Danny kid’s show.
And I will never forget his antics when Danny was the announcer for his Live Wrestling Show from the stockyards coliseum in OKC in the 60s. I searched the internet trying to find one of those old episodes, but couldn’t find any online.
Below is a great information site on Danny Williams and his career starting in the 40s.
Below is a link to Danny’s guest on his last day on the air, John Bennett. Most of you will remember Oklahoma Chef John Bennett submitting his fruit and nut cake recipe last November.
Danny’s last broadcast after 61 years in the business was on August 28, 2008.
The following is a link to an interview Danny Williams did just a couple years before his death. This interview is about an hour long, but it is the most interesting interview you’ll ever listen to, as he answers questions his about his start in broadcasting and continuing to present day, some very serious, and some comical with a laugh or two. I got several chuckles out of Danny’s interview, and felt like I was right there with him. I really loved this interview.
Family members said friends and fans are welcome to attend a special memorial service at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Oklahoma Historical Society to celebrate his life and career.
