FRANK HALEY [News Director KDAZ-730 ex KLIF-1190, KILT-610] (Albuquerque, NM) Subject: Frank Haley’s 75th Birthday! Last night Friday April 10, 2015, in Albuquerque at Journey Fellowship, family and friends packed the Church to celebrate New Mexico Hall-of-Fame Broadcaster Frank Haley’s 75th Birthday. Frank is currently the morning news anchor at KDAZ AM730. We not only celebrated Frank’s birthday but his Godly life, his Godly wife Alice and family and his 55 years in broadcasting. 82 year-old- Richard Glancey from San Antonio, Texas was the master of ceremonies. Mr. Glancey hired Frank as a news anchor back in 1966 at KLIF (1190) in Dallas, Texas! It was very touching to hear all the stories Mr. Glancey shared with us on his love for Frank and Alice. Frank and Alice Haley have made a huge Godly imprint on so many people over the years including me and my wife Sharon. I was so very blessed to hire Frank when I managed KKIM radio in Albuquerque and also getting to see him inducted into the Hall-of-Fame while he served at KKIM.

CHARLES GEORGE [KC5RAI – ex KCHU FM] (Dallas, TX) Yes, I was talking about the old KLIF (1190) building. I liked KLIF but often listened to KFJZ (1270) more, since I liked their announcers better, that and enjoyed KVIL when it was top-40, before becoming Adult Contemporary. Charles George
JIM PREWITT [Catfish] (Bedford-Dallas, TX) Subject: You! Hey Jim. Just wanted to check in and say hi to you and Suzie. Hope Both of you are in good health. PS: I wonder if Tony Williams dog Scooter still lets out gas?
TRIVIA ANSWER: On December 10, 1959, San Francisco, CA businessman Franklin Mieuli, signs on KPUP FM (106.9). In July 1960, Franklin changes the call letters to KHIP FM with Jazz music. On July 1, 1962 Mieuli sells KHIP FM to Leon Crosby. In August 1962 Leon flips KHIP FM to KMPX FM in multiplex stereo. By mid-1964, KMPX airs middle of the road music. On February 12, 1967, Larry Miller spins folk rock music midnight-6 am. On April 7, 1967 KMPX FM showcases a new Progressive Rock format in San Francisco, CA.
TONY WILLIAMS [WKY-930/KRLD-1080/Metro Traffic] (Richardson-Dallas, TX) Subject: Scooter. Haha. Well, he (Jim Prewitt) stayed with me one night a few years ago when he was still working in California. He is living in Texas now. I joked about it, although it is rather rare for Scooter to pass gas. I do not feed her a lot of human food. Do you know that she has never defecated or urinated in the house? She simply refuses to go inside. Scooter will cry, bark, whatever to alert me that she wants outside. I found her on a rainy day in October 2007. Never found the owners (I think they dumped her. She had a collar on, but no tags or a microchip.) So we have been best friends ever since.
CHRISTOPHER SMART (April 11, 1722 – May 21, 1771) Awake before the sun is risen, I call for my pen and papers and desk.
