What a great obit picture of one of my favorite radio colleagues. Steve was always just on the edge of some kind of mischief and fun and his personality is captured perfectly in the photo. The days of T-102 and WIMA were made all the more compelling and pleasurable by Steve and, sadly, those who have passed before him; Gordy, Tom, Dixie (way too soon), and yes, Les, who kept everybody on their toes. I miss them all and others who Steve will now join. Wandering into the T-102 studios was always an adventure. I made it a point to check in every day to share laughs and the possibility that Steve would occasionally put me on the air without warning and with a surprise question. Steve was a unique personality. Who knew about his boxing exploits? He was not one to brag. Of all the markets, large and small, where I plied my trade, I most enjoyed T-102 and WIMA...always something percolating. I don't want to be maudlin. I just want to say, I'm glad I got to hang around with Steve for those times we shared being wiseacres. From the Navy to Accountant to boxing champ to Country DJ...what a life!!! Condolences to daughters and family. Say hi to the gang up there, Steve
