Jack Beebe calls himself “Mr. Backstage” but in terms of radio and television history in New York since the 1950s, he’s had a front row seat.
He started as a teen disk jockey on WALK in East Patchouge, worked alongside Barbara Walters and the future Allison “The Nightbird” Steele at WPIX-TV, kept watch over Murray the K at WINS…and that’s not even mentioning his time broadcasting in Korea or the blood sweating hippopotamus.
