Don’t ask where you’ve heard Les Marshak….ask where you haven’t. Les has been, among other things, the voice of the Oscars, the Emmys, the Grammys and the Macy’s Day Parade, as well as a deejay who became part of radio history. He landed a job at New York’s top-rated WABC by
winning a “Star Search” contest while he was a pharmacy student. He moved on, but was back at ABC the infamous night that deejay Roby Yonge, in the midst of the “Paul Is Dead” mania, went on the air and announced that yes, it was true, causing enough hysteria to crash New York City’s phone lines. Station management took him off the air and put Les on the air to deal with the distraught fans and confused media.
