(SAN DIEGO, CA – September 25, 2018) It’s with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of a great radio icon, Paul Menard. Menard, best known for his role as Irving Harrigan of the National Radio Hall of Fame morning team show, Charlie & Harrigan, was 81 years old.
Menard was instrumental in naming Charlie Tuna, (the new night guy at the time) in the early 60’s at KOMA, Oklahoma City. And played a role producing The Lemon Pipers number one song, ‘Green Tambourine’.
His wife Patti, 5 daughters, sons-in-laws and grandchildren, survives Paul.
