Lloyd Lindsey Young

I'm going to go a little ways back into obscurity for this one today. You'd probably have to be over the age of 25 years old and grew up in New York to have heard about this guy. If you remember him though, he was a small slice of your youth. Before Al Roker and Sam Champion, there was Lloyd Lindsey Young.

I don't know much about Lloyd Lindsey Young. Not much is written about him either. However, he used to be the weather man on the old channel 9 or WOR network in New York. If there was ever a guy using hardcore drugs who also did the weather, this was your man. He also had a voice made for TV.

I'll let the below video speak for itself. Notice the witty banter and old school graphics. This guy was hilarious. Notice how he hardly stops moving and does his patented "hellooooooooooooooooooooooo" at around the 35 second mark. This was a typical broadcast for him too. Sadly I couldn't find him pronouncing the word "humidity" as "hum-ah-did-ity" as he often did as well.

You think Chris "Mad Dog" Russo had some inspiration for his "heellllooooooo everybody" when he opens the Mike and Mad Dog show?

He's the weather guy out in Des Moines, Iowa. He should come back to NY in my opinion.

He's still on the air, doing radio for 910am in San Francisco.
