Charlie Brennan’s 25th Anniversary “Roast”

Charlie BIn 1988, Ronald Reagan was President of the United States, the St Louis Football Cardinals announced a move to Phoenix, and Charlie Brennan started hosting nights and weekends on KMOX-AM radio. A lot has happened in 25 years, and Charlie Brennan has covered it all while becoming a St. Louis local treasure.

KMOX would like to invite you to explore 25 years with a multimedia history of Charlie Brennan including photos, best-of interviews, and Charlie’s reflection on a quarter century behind the microphone.

On Wednesday, November 20th, KMOX threw a good old fashioned roast for Charlie! It was a night of drinks, great food, and great laughs at the Anheuser Busch Brewery!

The Charlie Brennan Roast brought in $10,000 for the Mathews-Dickey Boys’ & Girls’ Club.

The Mathews-Dickey Boys’ & Girls’ Club, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1960 by Martin L. Mathews and the late Hubert “Dickey” Ballentine. Initially, the Club was designed to provide structured recreational activities to neighborhood youths. Today, the Club serves more than 40,000 young men and women, ages 5-18, throughout the St. Louis-metropolitan area. The Club also serves as a meeting center for various community, social and business organizations and as an outreach resource center for troubled youth.
