Don Chamberlain (KNEW) Obituary

Don Chamberlain was a pioneer of the radio "sex talk" genre with his groundbreaking "California Girls" program on KNEW/910. The program, which debuted in 1972, was part of an explosion of talk shows that mixed healthy amounts of pop psychology and frank sexual discussion; Bill Ballance's "Feminine Forum" echoed "California Girls" on Los Angeles' airwaves.

Mr. Chamberlain left radio to earn his master's degree in psychotherapy in the 1980s and opened his own practice in Walnut Creek. He died of cancer at the age of 64 on February 26, 1992.
