Re: On air names


I have always used the same name Bryan O’Neal since 1977. I toyed with Chris Edwards before I was ever on the air, I think it was Gary Stevens/ John Sebastian/Sunny Day at KPAM who helped me with the name. He wanted to call me Maddog Bryan O’Neal because of my long hair and beard at the time. Kept my first name, went with O’Neal instead of (Green, legal name.. Grandma was hurt I changed it). For while at KPAM-FM and at 62 KGW I’d throw in “The Real” Bryan O’Neal, until PD Richard Harker told me to drop it.. Other than that.. same name for nearly 40 years on the air.
