KLRR-FM 107.5 Bend OR Bob Hards 1989

In May, 1989, tragedy stuck the Central Oregon radio community. Scott Campbell died suddenly, the result of a heart attack. Along with Elise Michaels, Scott spent several years as the morning team of KXIQ-FM 94.1 “Q94” across town. Scott and Elise brought their popular show to Clear 107 the previous year.

Bob Hards was asked to fill in on the Monday morning immediately following Scott’s death. You can hear the somber tone in his voice throughout this aircheck. Over at the “Q” where I did afternoons, we were informed early that day as to what had transpired. I immediately began rolling tape on KLRR and was able to catch the last part of Bob’s morning show. In another exhibit, Tom Jeffries’ midday show and announcement by General Manager Daryl Delaney is featured.

This was recorded using a Realistic AM/FM/CD/cassette portable stereo unit. The original source tape is a Memorex dBS 90 cassette.
