Stan Dale: The Voice of the Lone Ranger and the First Radio Sex Therapist Died

Stan Dale was one of the most amazing people I've ever met and I didn't know he died in early June at the age of 78 until today.

He was a star in the days when radio was the biggest thing going, and then, a star to a more select group of people in the therapy community he founded called the Human Awareness Institute.

It should have been a front page story. He was the radio announcer for the Lone Ranger, the one who did that great introduction that ended with a "Hi-ho silver, away." If you want to hear him yourself, click here: www.originaloldradio.com/lone_ranger.html

You really have to hear that to appreciate the man who started as a big name in the early days of radio, and came to San Francisco to found an unconventional therapy group that has inspired thousands of people over the years.

He also had the first sex therapy radio show late nights on KGO-AM in the 1960s.

Here is the obit written about him on the Harbin Hot Springs website, where he conducted workshops for an organization he founded called the Human Awareness Institute.
