Boston radio legend Larry Glick has passed away at the age of 87.

According to WBZ, Glick died after undergoing 10 hours of open heart surgery Thursday afternoon.

Glick was a unique radio talk show host through the sixties, seventies and eighties. His career at WBZ reached its peak when he was host for the station’s early morning weekday shows, from midnight on.

His pleasant and charismatic voice enfolded a mix of lighthearted chat, sassy sound effects, obscure and funny musical numbers, and lots of generally wacky calls from listeners.

As late as 2007, Larry was the Ambassador of Good Will for the Legal Seafood Restaurant in the Boca Raton Mall in Florida.

Glick is survived by his wife Lisa and daughters Tali and Nannette.
