Thirty Nine years ago on September 16, 1972, Bill Perry,
General Manager of KONO/KITY, and his wife June were killed in a
head-on automobile accident near Nashville TN.
Bill was a force to be reckoned with in San Antonio Radio. He believed both in mentoring and supporting new talent. Not only was he a major factor in making KONO a ratings winner, but he also was beginning to get a better understanding of FM radio as he lead the battle to expand the listening experience on FM.
Bill loved live music and was a strong supporter of local music talent.
I am greatful that I knew Bill both personally and as a family friend.
