Remembering Bill Bailey
Longtime West Michigan radio icon Bill Bailey died suddenly at the age of 66 on the golf course after suffering an apparent heart attack on Wednesday, June 12th at the age of 66. He was working a station event for Public/Oldies WGVU AM 1480/850 in the Grand Rapids area where he was the Program Director and morning host. Funeral arrangements are pending.
Listen back to Bill when he was hosting mornings at Detroit's WDRQ-FM 93.1 back in the 1970s on George Griggs' Motor City Radio Flashbacks site.
Art Vuolo remembers Bill with a Video Air Check featuring some of his work at WLHT-FM 95.7 Grand Rapids and at a WLS Chicago rewind, seen below:
