WKNR’S SWEENEY QUITS KEENER 13 . . . AUGUST 21, 1965

August 30th, 2017

From the MCRFB NEWS archive: 1965

FRANK SWEENEY EXITS WKNR

 

 

 


 

Keener’s Swingin’ Sweeney may have had more that his fill when he quit in August 1965. Bob Green, left, looks on.

DETROIT — Frank Sweeney, music director and morning air personality on WKNR “Keener 13” radio, resigned Saturday, August 14, after completing his morning show.

Frank Maruca, program director at the station, said that Paul Cannon, former all-night talent at the Top 40 station, has been named music director. Jim Jeffries of sister station WKFR in Battle Creek, Michigan, has been brought in to handle chores on a temporary basis.

Maruca said Sweeney had been planning to give up his air time on August 23 to devote himself strictly to music director duties. He did not give any reason for Sweeney’s abrupt resignation from the Detroit station. END
