Actor Cliff Robertson Dies

Actor Cliff Robertson, whose career spanned a half-century, died on Saturday at the age of 88.

Along with his lengthy acting career, Robertson was known for his love of aviation.  He was a frequent visitor to the Aviation Hall of Fame, located next to the National Museum of the United States Air Force.  He would fly in his own place from New York to Dayton to attend the Hall of Fame's Enshrinement ceremonies.  His participation resulted in his own enshrinement in the Hall of Fame in 2006.

Roberston attended Antioch College, studying journalism and broadcasting before going to California to pursue an acting career.

A chance meeting with a volunteer in a college computer lab in 1987 brought Mike to WYSO. He started filling in for various music shows, and performed various production, news, and on-air activities during the late 1980s and 90s, spinning vinyl and cutting tape before the digital evolution.
