was born during the Depression and enjoyed listening to musicians such as Glenn Miller,
Louis Armstrong, Peggy Lee and Tommy Dorsey. As an adult, Bill’s passion for jazz
developed further and drew him to WUMR. He was always told that he had a voice for
radio and was excited about the prospect of being able to share his love of jazz with
