After 51 years, Saturday, December 18th will be Charlie Boone’s last show on WCCO Radio.  Charlie began working afternoons on ‘CCO in 1959.  But after a couple of years, the “chats” he was having with fellow WCCO host Roger Erickson turned into a full blown partnership and they spent the next 3+ decades waking people up with the “Good Morning Song”!  Charlie Boone is a true legend in Minnesota media and without question, one of our finest “Good Neighbors”.
