FMQB offers condolences to the family and friends of Legendary Philadelphia DJ/Air Personality Don Cannon who passed away peacefully Friday Morning, at the age of 74, reports 6abc.com. Cannon was known as “The Dean of Philadelphia Radio,” he was a fixture on morning radio in Philly from 1969 until his retirement in 2004. The Cannon in the Morning show started on WIBG and has been heard on WIP, WFIL, WIFI, WSNI and WOGL. He also spent time in the programming departments of WSNI and WPGR. Nationally, Cannon's voice was featured in the original Rocky movie, when the morning alarm clock goes off for Rocky's run, it's Cannon's voice you hear on the radio. He is survived by his wife Terri, two sons and two granddaughters. Funeral services will be held Sunday at Levine Funeral Home in Trevose, PA. There's atribute page set-up on WOGL FM website where Cannon last hosted mornings from 1990 to 2004.
