Wild Bill Cody Remembered
Wild Bill Cody was one in a million! and one of the funniest guys I ever had the pleasure of meeting. From the very first day I walked in to this job he was right there to answer any questions I had, and offered his advice and experience to me. He never made me feel like I was a bother to him, instead he made me feel like he had all the time in the world for me or anyone who asked for his help.
It seemed like he was always on stage or behind the mic when you talked to him. He always had a smile about him and no one and I do mean no one could tell a story like he could. Very few people can crack me up and make me laugh till I can’t breath anymore, and he was one of them! He was entertaining to say the least and just one of those all around good guys.
Wild Bill loved entertaining people! Radio was a great way for him to reach out to the community that tuned into him. He was a stand up guy who loved his radio, comedy but most of all he loved his dogs! His Irish Setters were his pride and joy and he love them unconditionally! and they loved him just the same.
I can just visualize Bill up there right now with the big guy himself, cracking jokes, telling stories and making others around him laughing and entertaining them all, in the way only Bill could and can. Thank you Bill for everything! You will be greatly missed and always remembered by those you left behind. I thank you for your time and knowledge, you were a great help to me and many others!!
