JACK PARNELL [ex PD/DJ WHBQ-560] (Memphis, TN) Subject: Ed Taylor. Late yesterday, I got a notification that a friend, Ed Taylor, who I had known at least 50 years, was hit by a car and killed near his home in Paducah, KY. He had a great career in broadcasting…had worked at WIRJ in Humboldt, TN and WDXI in Jackson, TN. Where I also had worked back in 1957 and early 1958, just prior to having moved to Memphis to work for WHBQ. Ed spent many years doing sports announcing in his hometown of Paducah. He’ll be sadly missed. Jack Parnell–former disk jockey/program director at WHBQ-Memphis, TN.

He is currently suffering from post-polio syndrome which is causing his body to weaken even as his mind and spirit remain strong. Bobby is receiving in-home care. I spoke with him and he sounded positive. He asked that I let you all know about his current struggle and that you remember him in your prayers. We had a good talk and laughed. He said he hopes to be better in time for the next SoSARB gathering. Please pray for Bobby and send me any messages that I can pass along to him. All the best to each of you for the New Year. Liz

JOE FORD [ex KILT-610, KNUZ-1230, KFMK FM] (Houston-Spring, TX) Subject: Happy New Year, Jim & Susie. Thought you might like to know that Roy Head is in the ICU for a ruptured aorta. He came through surgery fine and is resting comfortably as of this writing. Roy is a dear friend and is fortunate one of his hunting buddies was with him while he was hunting near Crockett, Texas and felt a stabbing pain in his back. He was rushed home to the Porter area and the hospital, had the surgery, lost a lot of blood, but he’s a tough guy and came through operation with no problems. They have him in a medically induced coma to make sure he gets plenty of rest. He should come out of that in a couple of days. We went by Friday afternoon and talked with Carolyn and Sundance who thank everyone for their concern and support. Please keep him and his family in your prayers for a speedy recovery.
