Jerry Sheeder is the heritage of KKEZ and sister station KWMT. He was the voice of authority in Fort Dodge for more than 40 years. Prior to this, he worked for legendary stations WRC/Washington, DC and WTAE/Pittsburgh where he was known as Jerry Shane. His newscasts were performed live with no edits or electronic gimmicks. Yes, that’s his real voice. Hell of a set of pipes, isn’t it?
Since I was no longer in the area, I had a friend in Iowa Falls record this aircheck for me. The source tape was a Sony HF90 cassette. Other recording equipment is unknown.
Sadly, Jerry Sheeder passed away on September 6, 2013. R.I.P, friend. You were truly one of the best to ever grace the Iowa airwaves.
