Who was the voice of the “Crazy Eddie” stereo stores?

A New York disc jockey named Jerry Carroll (also known as Dr. Jerry) did the radio and TV ads for the chain of electronics stores “Crazy Eddie” in the Northeast, which began with a store on Kings Highway in Brooklyn in 1972.

Although he screamed and yelled at the camera, Carroll himself was not “Crazy Eddie”; that was Eddie Antar, founder of the stores.

In 1989 the chain of stores collapsed in scandal, with Antar indicted for defrauding stockholders.
