Lee Rogers for more than three decades.
From Seattle to Billings, San Diego, Minneapolis, Jacksonville, Portland and other radio markets he enriched hundreds of thousands of lives. He knew how to entertain, but more than that he gave everything he had to his audiences and communities. He made Wapato very, very proud by living life to the full every day.
So, when I was visiting him a couple years ago, I went with him to the Phoenix VA Hospital to wait with him during his appointment. He spotted this guitar in the lobby and jumped at having his photo with it.
Lee loved guitars, nightclubs, country music, radio, family and his many, many friends with myriad associations from each of those things. To say that he was bigger than life and a people person would be gross understatements.
2011 Country Radio Hall Of Fame class left us today at the age of 67.
Lives are better for having known Lynn "Lee" Rogers!
I count myself as richer for having been one who is proof of that.
It Gets Late Early Out There - Wisdom can come from anywhere. As a baseball fan - and especially a Yankees fan - learning of the passing of Hall of Famer Yogi Berra was sad news indeed....
