I was one of Bobby’s best friends since the mid ‘70s when he gave a very green jock his 2nd job (me) when he programmed KHOS-Tucson. His track record is so enormous I can’t even remember all of the Phoenix stations, but did mornings at KJJJ, KNIX, also he worked at the old KRDS, also at KARZ, and KOOL-FM. He also launched KIKX-Tucson as a Country station in Sept 1977. In the 90s, he worked at KBGO-Las Vegas, and KQOL-Las Vegas. His other credits include KIKK-Houston-Pasadena, TX, also K-Frog in Farmington, NM, Hobbs, NM, and he worked some part time gigs in Oklahoma City. He is survived by his sons.”
