Vaughn Harper, a disc jockey who kept New Yorkers company after dark for decades with soothing music and a sleek baritone voice on the WBLS radio show “Quiet Storm,” died on Saturday in Englewood, N.J. He was 70.
The cause was complications of diabetes, his wife, Sandra Harper, said.
Mr. Harper joined WBLS in 1976 after Frankie Crocker, the station’s program director, heard him working as a nightclub M.C. His show took the name “Quiet Storm” in the early 1980s.
“Quiet Storm” opened with the sound of a soft breeze and seamlessly blended different eras and styles of music, from blues to smooth jazz to contemporary R&B — a new Luther Vandross song might be followed by a classic from Nat King Cole, for example — all of it anchored by Mr. Harper’s singular, intimate voice. The show quickly became a nightly staple for city dwellers and a signature for WBLS, which was for many years one of the top-rated stations in New York.
