"Big" Ron O'Brien's memorial service will begin at 11 a.m. Friday at the Bringhurst Funeral Home, at West Laurel Cemetery (225 Belmont) in Bala Cynwyd.

The 98.1 WOGL afternoon jock died Sunday after a bout with pneumonia. WOGL, which has a tribute page up at wogl.com, has asked anyone interested in donating money to do so to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The service will be broadcast in real time at wogl.com.

An odd note on O'Brien's death is that he recently had been hospitalized at Paoli Memorial, where radio legend Hy Lit was being cared for at the time of his November death.

O'Brien, a former WFIL jock whose 39-year career also took him to New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, started at WOGL in October 2001, not in 2002 as we stated in our Monday report of his death.
