Some of the best times of my life. Before I worked there, I would go to the events downtown or at the fair and bug all the jocks. Then I got the chance to be a jock at the #1 station, not to mention, the coolest station around. Bruce created a laid back, non-corporate, atmosphere that allowed someone to succeed or fail on their own merits. I remember his laugh and smile. i also remember there always seemed to be quite a few of Bud Light cases in the storage area downstairs. Thanks for the fond memories Bruce.

Uncle Bruce was always my cool uncle when I was little. I have great memories of riding in the back seat of his convertible, his friendly teasing, his nicknames for me, and his always constant smile. One day I found a box of chocolate covered insects in his car....he must have spent a lot on them and had planned some practical jokes for his friends, because he was sure upset with me when I ate all of them. Rest in peace Uncle Bruce.

I shall always have a place in my heart for Bruce. My years working at Rock 106 were the best! Bruce was supportive, understanding, and he always had time to listen. Rest in peace, dear friend.
