Picture Of
Larry Dixon, 2008
[Description by contributor Gary McBrayer]

Taped directly from the radio, it's March 15, 1988 and on this afternoon, Larry Dixon is completing his final air shift after 12 1/2 years at KVIL. Today, he is tag-teaming with Bill Gardner who has returned to KVIL to assume the afternoon drive shift as Larry moves on to mornings at WFYR-FM in Chicago.

At this point in time, KVIL had dominated the Dallas ratings for over a decade. Along with Larry and Bill, you'll hear Peggy Sears and Ray Walker in the news department, Ted Davis doing sports, and Nick Alexander in the K-V-I-L-icopter — along with the station's usual staple of listener call-ins and promotions — all the parts that went into making the station a programming legend during the 70's, 80's and 90's.

. . . That's right - a quick twelve-and-a-half years, and I'm outta here . . .

[Description by Uncle Ricky for contributor Gary McBrayer]

Here's Part Two of Larry Dixon on first-class KVIL in Dallas, TX., from March 15, 1988, as Larry wraps up twelve-and-a-half years on this top-rated station.

This is just about as smooth and slick as Adult Contemporary music radio could ever be, complete with Al Jarreau for AT&T. The exceptional talent, polished information segments, excellent jingles and tasty music mix all blend together into one of the most pleasant baby-boomer radio presentations you will ever be privileged to hear.
