At the American Mustache Main Campus in Pittsburgh, PA, and all branch campuses nationwide, faculty and staff will observe a moment of silence at 8:23 AM est. in honor of mustached radio pioner Captain Dan Geary’s final show on the airwaves.

As noted by his folicularly-endowed son:

Please join me in extending best wishes to my dad, Captain Dan, who is hanging up the headphones at WMCE Mercyhurst University on May 31st.

Captain Dan has been waking up Erie for the past 30 years providing Erie with the greatest hits of your life. In addition to his career in radio, The Captain donated his time to the community and charities like The Children’s Miracle Network, Barber Center, and Achievement Center just to name a few. He will be greatly missed by Erie radio listeners and colleagues alike. Trying to find words to describe his full impact on the community would be futile. I can say with confidence though that his light-hearted, affable personality, sharp sense of humor, and love for his city has made him THE on-air personality for the past three decades. He will be greatly missed and impossible to replace.

With that, I invite you to join in the celebration by calling (440) 941.6509 to leave my dad a voice message of your well-wishes… Share how his radio program affected you, a favorite memory you’ve had in the car, at work, or at home while listening, or one of the hundreds of remotes you may have visited him (and enjoyed a Smith’s hotdog at). I will compile all the messages into an audio file that he can enjoy and reflect upon in his new found time.

I know you all join in with me wishing Captain Dan well as he starts a new chapter in his life. This is not ‘good-bye’ but ‘see you around’ as he will still be able to be heard on Groovyradio which he loves so much. I hope you will share a memory.

Share your memories and well-wishes now! Leave a message at (440) 941.6509

With all our Love,
Sean, Bryan, Danny, Lauren, and the Lovely Mary Kay.

Captain Dan has been a long supporter of both the AMI and the sexually dynamic Mustached American lifestyle. His dulcet tones and raw machismo will be missed.

By proclamation of our esteemed President, Dr. Adam Paul Causgrove, May 31, 2017 shall be observed as Captain Dan Day – if your workplace allows, we strongly urge you to wear your pants at half mast.
