An Article Worth Sharing - Linda Welby

By Joe Nelson

   When I first met Linda Welby, The Mighty 1090 - Scott and B.R. Show, it's like she had known me for years. A very sweet and approachable lady. Linda instantly became a favorite of mine.

   I was saddened to hear when she revealed she was diagnosed with cancer. But having said that, she spoke with such confidence and lack of fear. Linda Welby is a strong woman, a fighter.

   In this article from The San Diego Union Tribune published Wednesday, Diane Bell talks about where she was, where she is now, and how she was able to go to a World Series game to see her beloved Red Sox play against the Dodgers.

    Love to you, Linda Welby, from SanDiegoRadio.org

Paul Menard aka Irving Harrigan of "Charlie & Harrigan" passes

By Joe Nelson

Special thanks to Bo Woods for his help on this story, Condolences from SanDiegoRadio

(SAN DIEGO, CA – September 25, 2018) It’s with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of a great radio icon, Paul Menard. Menard, best known for his role as Irving Harrigan of the National Radio Hall of Fame morning team show, Charlie & Harrigan, was 81 years old. 

He passed peacefully in a North County San Diego hospital on Tuesday September 25th. Paul Menard was a popular morning disc jockey on KOMA-AM in Oklahoma City as Paul Miller before being teamed with Jack Woods in 1965 at KLIF-AM in Dallas as the newly recreated Charlie & Harrigan. 

Together they worked on-air at WKYC in Cleveland, KILT in Houston, KFMB in San Diego, KCBQ in San Diego and WAVA in Washington D.C. Their ‘Charlie & Harrigan Presents’ syndicated morning show was heard daily in 53 markets, simultaneously, across the country. Menard is now reunited with Woods, who passed 3 years before him, as Charlie & Harrigan once again are entertaining eternally.



Menard was instrumental in naming Charlie Tuna, (the new night guy at the time) in the early 60’s at KOMA, Oklahoma City. And played a role producing The Lemon Pipers number one song, ‘Green Tambourine’.



His wife Patti, 5 daughters, sons-in-laws and grandchildren, survives Paul.
