GARY DELAUNE [KYTY-810, KLIF-1190, CH 5 KENS TV] (San Antonio, TX) Subject: special emergency bulletin – Suzie. Jim; Let’s set up a GoFundMe page for Suzie. They take a small percentage of the donations but it is the best way to raise money in a quick way. It is a reputable web site. You have to give them a code etc. Last year, Bruce Hathaway and I kicked off a campaign for a former country music star who was desperately short of money. It raised over $10,000. Someone has to set it up and I don’t know how to do it but I’ll kick in $50 as soon as it is set up. I won’t have much cash until football season but perhaps we can get it going.

TRIVIA ANSWER: On June 5, 1977 DJ Charlie Van Dyke performs his last show on KHJ-930 Los Angeles, CA.
DANNY [Mack] MCWILLIAMS [GM KRNH FM Country (The Ranch 92.3)] (Kerrville, TX) Subject: Jim Gough. I guess it’s one of the sad signs of getting older, when friends start passing from this life. I am heartbroken to hear the news of my very good friend Jim Gough’s passing. Jim and I became very good friends when we both were working at KFRD-FM, in Rosenberg, in the early 80’s. Jimmy’s sense of humor and mine just cliqued. We both had a love for Western Swing and he introduced me to more legends than I can remember, in person, and through his weekly radio show “Rhythm Roundup.” His series on Texas history, “Today in Texas” was a well loved short-form radio program that kept our beloved Lone Star history alive. His most well known talent was, of course, that legendary voice. He used to bill himself, in jest, as the “Cheap Man’s Rex Allen.” Of course he was in so many movies and TV shows, but I still laugh when I think back to him calling me and asking me in his one of a kind voice; “Danny Mack have you seen that new movie The Newton Boys?” To which I replied that “I had not.” He said “well you need to see it, I got to shoot that snot nosed Matthew McConaughey.” As I recall Jim appeared in the film’s opening moments shooting from the running board of an automobile chasing Matthew across an open field. So many stories I could regale you with, but know that one of the greatest Ad Men of all time is now gone. Jim was accomplished in so many Commercial Art forms, including; Voice over, TV commercials (remember “The Good Guys in the White Hats?), Graphic art, Jingle writing and more. Though silenced now, that voice and friendship will live with me for the rest of my life. Jim, as you saddle up for your last journey, I thank you for the gift of knowing you. You will be missed partner. More than you know.
LORD BYRON (January 22, 1788 – April 19, 1824) Fare thee well! and if for ever, Still for ever, fare thee well.
Jim Rose and Suzie
