Editor's note:  Boomer was the afternoon drive jock at Magic 96.1 for about 13 years.  His "Cartunes" show featuring sound effects and dialog from cartoons mixed with great Oldies made the drive home fun.  Callers would give Boomer real traffic reports from their cell phones and in return for their "on the scene" info the listener would then get their request played while stuck in traffic.  His real name isn't Boomer, but I've never heard anyone call him anything else.  Early in his Magic days he went by Boomer VonCannon but dropped the last name completely.  I'm sure everyone who ever worked with "Boom-Daddy" will agree that even though he has massive radio talents, he's a very humble fellow and there's no nicer guy to work with anywhere.  Boomer was working at WMQX FM, "Oldies 93" in Greensboro until their demise in October 2006.    Thanks to Nicole Anthony for supply the photo at the top of the page as it captures the "real" Boomer better than any we've seen.  Ed.
