One of the pioneers of the station that became abc27 was laid to rest on Thursday.

Al Morrison led the “Al Morrison Trio” every weekday at 10 a.m. on a musical show called Skyline Towers.

It was among the very first shows the station presented live in the studio when WPTA Channel 71 went on the air in 1953.

Al passed away this week at age 92.

He remained with the station well into the 70s and continued performing for many years.
