‘Chickenman’ Dick Orkin Dead at 84

Over a groundbreaking 68-year career in radio, Dick Orkin was the comic genius behind “Chickenman,” the phenomenally popular serial spoof hatched at Chicago’s WCFL in the 1960s, and later some of the funniest and most memorable commercials ever heard on radio stations across the country.

Orkin died Sunday, December 24, 2017, in California after suffering a stroke. He was 84.  

I remember enjoying these episodes on KxOK radio in St. Louis. Here’s one such episode…
