Ron Jacobs died March 8, 2016 (age 78) in Pearl City (Honolulu), Hawaii. See R.I.P. Ron Jacobs (kenlevine.blogspot.com); Radio Legend Ron Jacobs Passes (allaccess.com); and Hawaii radio pioneer Ron Jacobs dies (staradvertiser.com).

He was one of the true geniuses of Top-40 radio, “Part creative genius/part mad scientist/part visionary with all the parts constantly at war with each other.” (Ken Levine, 01/07/09). And he was a gifted writer: Backdoor Waikiki (memoirs of childhood in Hawaii); Uncle Tom's Rock 'n' Roll Scrapbook; over 150 magazine articles. Photo of Ron and his daughter.

Obamaland: Who Is Barack Obama? (2009) Obamaland: Who Is Barack Obama? (152 pages) This story tells of a young Barack Obama; of his heritage borne of a union between a man of color from Kenya and a Caucasian woman from Kansas; of his formative years enrolled in Hawai`i’s schools; the everlasting influence of his grandparents, the Dunham’s; and of the places, sights, sounds and smells of these islands that would shape and mold him. Visit the places that young Barack frequented. Walk the streets where he’s lived. Share in the stories and reflections of the people, famous and not so famous, who knew him or met him. Obamaland is Hawai`i, and Hawai`i is the birthplace of the 44th President of the United States of America.

KHJ: Inside Boss Radio (2002) KHJ: Inside Boss Radio, a 434-page, large format book combining the oral history of 93/KHJ, with Jacobs' anecdotes about his days at the legendary station, a compilation of jock memos, rare photos and more. It's "a gold mine for anyone interested in radio history."

I was hit by flying equipment and taken to the emergency room for 11 stitches. Lee saved all of the equipment boxes. After a trip to the emergency room and the wrecker location we made it to the stadium an hour before air time. The FSU Seminole Sports Network broadcast went on the air, on time.

Glory June
WFBQ [Indianapolis IN] 1978-1979
Now: Glory says (9/10), "I am a public historian and theatrical performer based in Indianapolis Indiana; I still do occasional voice work and lots of public programs. I was the first woman to do morning drive in Indianapolis ("WFBQ ... Q95 ... pass it on."); won a reader poll in local semi-underground paper as #1 most popular DJ AND 3rd least popular in the same poll -- nothing like stirring 'em up."
