Radio personality Dick Haynes was a morning listening habit for many Southern Californians for three decades.

Haynes and his program, "Haynes at the Reins," started at KLAC in 1946, but left about 10 years later when a change of format was implemented at the station. At radio station KFOX in Long Beach, Haynes was voted top country air personality of the year in 1969.

Haynes returned for his latest stint at KLAC when the station gave up talk radio in 1970 to become the Southland's top dispenser of country and western music.

He also had had minor roles in film and television throughout his career, including an appearance on "The Andy Griffith Show."
