Ralph Collier

Dave Conant Remembers Ralph Collier

Feb 2, 2013

I came to Philadelphia in the autumn of 1964 and soon found WFLN.  The classical music format reminded me of WQXR, the station I had enjoyed in North Jersey growing up. But at 12:30 pm weekdays they broadcast a really interesting interview program hosted by this sophisticated, well-spoken and often humorous host named Ralph Collier. Seven years later after college, and a brief career as a high school teacher, I found myself with a job at that station where I met that same broadcaster.
