OBITUARY: Ashton Chambers
Location: New York City
August 1, 2013: T&T lost one of its great personalities in Radio, Ashton F. Chambers, today. A 1959 Naps grad, one of the first "broadcasters" on the BCN, was an announcer on 610 Radio Guardian. He died in New York.
He was popular with the teenagers in the late 50's, 60's and 70's and was the host of a Saturday morning show "Sat-Teen-Session" Ashton was not limited to announcing he was an excellent newscaster and current affairs producer.
In my respectful view, a truly fine Announcer in that traditional style of excellence -he could excel at just about everything in a studio. And a good person. He left a lot of good things in his will for us. He was much liked, admired, and emulated.
