Happy Birthday to a Legend

By Joe Nelson

   SanDiegoRadio wishes a HUGE "Happy Birthday" to a true local Radio Legend- KCBQ's Jack Vincent!

Jack is 99 today!   Over the weekend his birthday was celebrated at his home in Santee with some friends.

Pictured here is Jack with (L-R) Bill Lipis, Bill Martin, Dave Grudt, Linda Irwin and Shotgun Tom Kelly

Shotgun sang him the 'Happy Birthday song' as only he could.

Here are some photos of Jack, including he and Shotgun at the former site of the KCBQ studios in Santee where the dedication monument stands for the iconic station.




   Just to put his longevity into perspective, as of Tuesday, Jack will see his 20th President named to the office. That's Theodore Roosevelt through... well we will just have to wait for tomorrow for that one!

I can tell you I have listened to some terrific stories from him about Presidents, radio, and just life itself.

Happy Birthday Jack Vincent!!!!
