[Description by Uncle Ricky]

The friendly and familiar voice of long-time Bay Area favorite Bill Keffury is heard on this Saturday morning hour from San Francisco's KYA. Keffury was "sitting in" for Gene Nelson.

Bill Keffury started his radio career in 1959 at KACY in Oxnard California. He joined KYA in 1963 after working at KRLA in Los Angeles (1961). Other than some time at KROY in Sacramento (1965), Keffury stayed in San Francisco for over thirty years, working at KIOI, KCBS-FM, KFOG, KABL and KPIX. As of 2006, Bill has retired in Las Vegas and operates an online easy-listening format at nicenoise.net.

The late Tony Tremayne (d. 2004) is also featured with PulseBeat News. Tremayne worked at a number of Bay Area stations before becoming President of AFTRA, San Francisco (1968-1970).
