MG Kelly

Gary D. Sinclair (born 1952), known professionally as Michael Gary “M.G.” Kelly and Machine Gun Kelly, is an American actor, disc jockey, and radio personality. In addition to hosting several radio programs over the years, Kelly has held several acting roles as a disc jockey; also, he has served as an offstage announcer on two game shows. His stage name is a reference to George “Machine Gun” Kelly, a notorious criminal.

M. G. Kelly’s acting career includes a role as DJ “Bebe Jesús” in the 1976 film A Star Is Born, starring Barbra Streisand[1] and the role of Father John Voss in the Clint Eastwood film The Enforcer,[1] as well as many television roles, including two CHiPs episodes from 1978 and the 1979 WKRP in Cincinnati episode titled “Fish Story”. He also provided the voice of the villian The Lightning Bug in the 1979 serial spoof J-Men Forever.

In addition to acting, Kelly served a short stint as announcer on the game show The Pop ‘N Rocker Game, hosted by Jon Bauman. In late 1988, he took over as the announcer on Wheel of Fortune following the death of former announcer Jack Clark in mid-1988. Kelly announced both the daytime network version of the show and the nighttime, syndicated version hosted by Pat Sajak until March 1989. Kelly was succeeded by Charlie O’Donnell, the original announcer of the daytime version, who remained with the show until his death in 2010.

Kelly has hosts and produced several radio programs all airing on Retro Radio, including:
