JIM BELL [KUHF FM 88.7 Morning Edition anchor since 1997-retires 2010] (Lufkin TX) Subject: Bob Presley. I’m really saddened to learn of Bob Presley’s passing. Yes he is best remembered for his years at KILT, but he was also at KPRC Radio for a few years in the late 60s and early 70s. He was there when I went to work there in 1969 when it was on S. Post Oak, and he made the move to KPRC’s fancy new studios on the SW Fwy in 1972. He left sometime around 1974, and I don’t know why he left, but I’m guessing it was to go back to KILT as sales manager. He did one of the midday shifts as I recall, and he really was one of the nicest and most amiable people I ever met in my 45 years in the radio biz. Jim Bell Lufkin TX
TRIVIA ANSWER: On February 3, 1927 U.S. President Calvin Coolidge signs the FCC into law known then as Federal Radio Commission.
JOE FORD [KLDE FM, KNUZ-1230, KILT-610] (Spring-Houston, TX) Subject: Bob Presley. RIP, Bob. What a great guy and a superb jock. When I first came to Houston, I marveled at the smooth presentation of the guy on KILT from Noon-3 everyday. The guy was Bob Presley. Truly one of the folks that made KILT a powerhouse. I had the pleasure of working with him during my time at KILT (1976-1980) and was impressed with his humble attitude and amazing work ethic.
