The Jay West Collection

Jay West began his radio career in Mexico City in 1957, while attending the American High School. He worked at XEL (for free, and the experience) until he was hired by KRIO McAllen, Texas, where he remained for 11 years, the last six as Program Director.

Jay was nominated for DJ of the Year (Small Market) at the 1971 Gavin Convention in New Orleans. He didn't win (that honor went to Gary Burbank), but received many offers from the exposure at the convention. He accepted an offer from KILT, Houston in December 1971, and stayed with KILT through August, 1976.

After leaving KILT, Jay began his own business operating a commercial recording studio, catering strictly to radio and TV voiceover. He's still making spots in Houston after 22 years.

Steve Lundy (1942 - 1999)

Steve Lundy at WLS

Steve Lundy, (Jack Foshee,) remembered as one of America's legendary deejays, died in his sleep at his home in Houston, Texas in April 1999.

He was born November 3, 1942, in Tyler, Texas.

He started his career at a local radio station in Tyler. He moved to Houston in 1970.

Steve Lundy was known nationwide and heard on major Top-40 stations including KILT in Houston, KFRC in San Francisco, WLS in Chicago, and KROQ in Los Angeles.

While at WNBC in New York, he won Disc Jockey of the Year.

In L.A. Radio People, Don Barrett writes:

"He walked with a wooden leg from an accident and his sign-off was: 'Don't forget to smell the flowers - cause we're only here for a short visit'".

Steve Lundy was a Texas Radio Hall Of Fame Instatee for 2004.

Contributor Jay West writes: "Steve Lundy was a good friend who asked me long ago to hold on to these airchecks - 'cause he would most likely lose them. Well, I held on to them, now I hope many more can hear one of the greatest radio voices ever."
