David S. MacNeill

He was best known for decades as “the voice of the Boston Pops,” but shortly before his passing two years ago, Dave MacNeill summed up his life’s achievements with this modest comment: “The short of it is 57 years at classical radio Boston, WCRB (102.5, then 99.5 thru 11/30/09), interrupted in the late 1950s by two years at KCBH-FM (98.7), Los Angeles. I served [WCRB] as morning, afternoon, evening and overnight announcer, news director, assistant to the program director, assistant general manager and general manager.”
