Legendary Charleston, South Carolina radio personality, Frankie Green, known on-air as “Frankie the Big Bopper”, passed away. RIP! Frankie was a native Charlestonian and a much-loved fixture on the Low country entertainment scene for more than 40 years. Since February 2000, he hosted a popular radio show that aired on Cumulus Media’s Urban AC station, WMGL-FM (Magic 107.3) every Saturday from 10am-3pm, playing old school and the blues and sharing stories and community information with his passionate and loyal audience.

Even as a child, radio had a big influence on his life. “I saw how the community depended on the radio,” said Frankie, who grew up in public housing on Charleston’s East Side. “They listened, not just for music, but to be informed.”
_____
In January 2015, Frankie was honored by President Barack Obama with the President’s Volunteer Service Award. The City of Charleston proclaimed April 25, 2006 as “Frankie the Big Bopper Day” in Charleston, and presented him with a proclamation honoring his service to the Charleston community and a key to the city.
