Don (Wehde) Wade’s radio career included stops at a dozen or so cities including WIBG Philadelphia, CHAM Hamilton, ON., KOL Seattle, and KTAC Tacoma. Wade’s trek eventually took him to Chicago, where, in 1985, he won a spot at WLS. His wife, Roma, joined him as co-host.

Wade was not only a rock and roll DJ, but also the brains and voice behind a cast of unforgettable politically incorrect comedic characters such as: General Nuisance and his aide Private Parts (aka Roma); Sheriff CW Turnipseed; Peter “Kiss! Kiss!” Suckwell, the Mary Gay Cosmetics truck driver, and his best friend Phil McCrackin; Dr Buster Hymen, staff gynecologist at your cervix; Cabbie/Guru Maharishi Marachino; and the Stoned Ranger and Toronto.

This is the STONED RANGER radio series, created by Don Wade, Tom Rivers and Jim Hault. These vignettes originally aired in 1973.

  1. Happy to listen to hear the Stoned Ranger again. I was a big fan. Orel Rowboats was another DW character, an aircraft carrier chaplain as I recall.

  2. Is this the same guy that did “Billy and the Kid”? Or was the show renamed due to the controversial nature of the title?
