Stacy Taylor is Alive and Well

By Joe Nelson
   A few weeks back, I received an email from a reader titled "Is Stacy Taylor Dead"
   I simply replied "Nope. Alive and well. He is taking a Social Media respite"
   I received another email yesterday asking if I 'was sure'.

Well, after contacting Taylor, here is proof that the former SD talk show host is just fine.
 Dated March 26, 2015

   You may rest well tonight, thanks for reading SanDiegoRadio!

Jack Vincent Hospitalized

By Joe Nelson
   Radio Icon Jack Vincent has been hospitalized for chest pains. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. More as it comes available.


RIP Jack Woods

By Joe Nelson
   Jack Woods, 'Charlie' of "Charlie and Harrigan" passed away last night. SanDiegoRadio.org sends his family condolences on the loss of a great man, and a radio legend. More when it comes available. Jack recently suffered a stroke and was recovering.

Thanks to David Manzi for this:
Remembering Jack Woods, aka "Charlie," pictured left alongside radio partner Paul Menard, aka "Harrigan." Charlie and Harrigan teamed up in 1965 and quickly rose to the top of San Diego's radio ratings, eventually taking their show national but recording specialized clips for each market so as to make the program sound local on each station. More common now, I believe they were the first to do so. As an engineer friend who worked with them said, Jeff and Jer, Hudson and Bauer, DSC and all that followed, owe Charlie and Harrigan a debt of gratitude for setting the standard of morning team radio. Recently inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame, they are the only representatives from San Diego radio. Jack Woods passed away last night following a recent stroke. He was 80 years-old.
