Comments:

Had lots of fun re-living my days as a top 40 DJ with the golden oldies show at the 50th. Thanks to Steve Sjordal for recruiting me. It was great to renew long ago friendships.

A capsule of my life since 1958 can be found in the book "The Luckiest Generation" that Rod Lazorik et. al put out. Too much to write here.

School Story:

I actually was not graduated from St. Louis Park High, although I attended St. Louis Park schools from 3rd grade through the first half of our senior year. My picture was taken for the yearbook in the fall, but my family moved to California in January of 1958, so I actually finished high school in Monrovia, CA and was not included in the Echowan for 1958. I was too late to be included in their yearbook and, although I received a diploma from Monrovia-Duarte High School, I really consider the class of '58 at Park as my class.

When I entered the fifth grade at Fern Hill School in St. Louis Park, the first classmate I met was Donnie Andersen.  He actually lived right next door to the school on 28th St.  I will never forget how friendly he was and how he made me feel welcome to the neighborhood almost immediately.  We became friends and spent many hours talking about baseball, especially about the Minneapolis Millers, the Triple A team in Mpls. at the time.  We also spent a lot of time on the softball field in the school yard.  Our interests diverged somewhat as we grew older, and the friendship wasn't especially close in later years, but I will never forget his kindness during those years at Fern Hill.

So sad to learn of the passing of Bob Oas.  I knew him fairly well early on, as we were in Boy Scouts together and were classmates, of course.  He was always very friendly to me.  We lived a few blocks apart, but close enough that we often saw each other as kids and whenever we were together he always had a smile for everyone. My heartfelt condolences to all his close friends and family.   RIP, Bobby.
