Jess Cain

For 34 years, hundreds of thousands of radio listeners awoke every weekday morning to the inimitable wit and delightful personality of Jess Cain on WHDH. Many will recall the jingle (sung to the tune of “On Top of Old Smokey”) “Jess Cain in the Morr-ning, from 6 until 10…but it isn’t 10 yet, so here’s Jess again!” Or, of course, his famous “Caaaarl Yastrzemski…the man we call Yaz” song during the Impossible Dream Year of 1967.  His rapport with long-time newsman Leo Egan was part of the fabric of morning radio in Boston.
