Denver radio personality Charley Martin dies at 67

DENVER (AP) - Radio personality Charley Martin, who was part of the dominant morning team from the 1970s to 1990s on Denver's KHOW radio, has died at age 67.

The Denver Post reported Martin died Friday in Phoenix while in hospice care, where he had been after his liver failed in June.

Martin's show "Hal and Charley" and later, "The Charley and Barney Show" and other co-hosts ran each morning in Denver from 1976 to 1995. A portion of Martin's show is immortalized in the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film, "The Shining," as it can be heard on the car radio as the family approaches the hotel.

Martin had retired and was teaching broadcasting at Scottsdale Community College in suburban Phoenix. Martin is survived by three sons and three granddaughters. Services are pending.
