If ever a broadcast personality is identified with the 60's, it's Johnny Holliday. Yet, today's followers of Maryland Terrapin Football & Basketball will also echo that sentiment regarding play-by-play broadcasting. To put it simply, Mr. Holliday has done it all. Born in Miami, Holliday began his broadcast career in Perry, Georgia. By 1959, he was making a name for himself at WHK in Cleveland. Fans of the Ron Jacobs' Cruisin' Series will instantly recognize Johnny's act on 'Cruisin' 64'. In 1965, Johnny Holliday was named Radio Personality of the Year. By the mid-60's, Johnny Holliday was literally all over the country. If the airlines had frequent flyer miles in those days, Johnny would have owned one. By the mid-60's, Johnny was in San Francisco at KYA. In addition to his work for the legendary Bay area Top 40 outlet, he was the staff announcer for NBC-TV's 'Hullaballoo' program.
