TV, Radio, Internet...dishing dirt since 2001
A True Bay Area Radio Legend...you will be missed, Sir.
Al Hart was truly a class act. May he rest in peace.
A very talented and humble man. Also a nice guy. RIP.
Solid professional, unlike the talking morons on most of the stations these days. Sad.
So very true this humble talented gentleman will be missed and we are not likely to see his equal again...
I never had the opportunity to work with Al Hart. But, it was always such a pleasure to run into him, and have a brief chat, at meetings and gatherings.A true gentleman.R.I.P.
A remarkable man. A remarkable journalist and broadcaster. Rest in peace Mr. Hart.
A very distinctive voice.Whenever I heard those Great Western Savings commercials on the radio I knew who was speaking.A radio icon.
A wonderful person and a true joy to work with. I spent a good part of a decade working with Al at KCBS, first in the Sheraton-Palace and later and #1 Embarcadero. I will miss him.
Class guy. Enjoyed his v/o work on the newsreel for the movie Tucker with Jeff Bridges, but it was his work at KCBS that made him a Bay Area great. What a giant.
Loved Al Hart. A background voice of my life for so many years. He will be missed.
Absolute class. He will be truly missed.
Al Hart's exchanges with John Madden, on their weekly snickerdoodle days, were priceless. As someone said above, that duo could have taken their show on the road.My compliments to KCBS for the wonderful coverage today, from current and past talents who worked with Al Hart. Those were the kinds of comments that obviously come from the heart... and in this case... that obviously honored the Hart.I shall have nothing but funny and sweet recollections of you, and of your love for music, Mr. Hart! RIP
So nice to read comments that are ALL positive on Rich’s blog, but that was Al Hart-so upbeat, genuine and a joy to listen to. Loved the 3 Al-John Madden segments they played today at 8:15AM on KCBS-never heard John laugh so hard on the Al newspaper “modeling” one!
I didn't know him, but know many who did. I liked his on-air style. Hope he went without suffering.
