Dr. Srini Vasan, 76, of El Dorado, who was a founding member and long time friend and supporter of KBSA, passed away on Thursday, April 27.   Longtime listeners will remember hearing his name and his voice many, many times on Red River Radio over the years.   He will be dearly missed.  His Obituary in the El Dorado News Times may be found here:

Tom Magliozzi who, along with his brother Ray, hosted NPR’s hit comedy show Car Talk for the last 37 years, died Monday morning, November 3, 2014, from complications of Alzheimer’s Disease. “Turns out he wasn’t kidding,” said Ray. “He really couldn’t remember last week’s puzzler.”  Tom Magliozzi was born June 28, 1937, in an East Cambridge, Massachusetts neighborhood filled with other Italian immigrant families. It was there that he and his younger brother Ray picked up the uniquely Boston-Italian style of expressing affection through friendly insults and teasing.
