Growing up in Phx I was always listening to the radio and dreaming of one day being on the air!! The first stations I remeber was KRIZ and KRUX (which is where i got my first on air job) and the first DJ that I ues to try and imitate was the Lengedary Bill Heywood, Unfortunatly he was found dead yesterday along with his wife Susan in a Scottsdale Hotel, there is talk of a suicide, I cannot tell you how much this sadens me!! I just talked with Bill recently at a ABA lucheon and he looked great was in good sprits and as always made me feel great about the career that I have chosen theses past 32 years. Bill lead the way for all of us on how to in this bussiness everything from how to speak, talent fees, show prep to how to manage contracts, endorsments and self marketing, he changed radio for all of us! I am having a hard time beliving that someone who had the radio industry at his feet for so long would commited suicide? There has been reports of him losing his home in forclosure and hard times, but what of all his financial success in this State? and he was not a person who would crumble ! Bill was a fighter and he knew how to win! I hope that when the rest of the story unfolds we find the truth! for now all I can say is Bill Heywood was a big part of this humble DJ's life and I will always admire the work he has left behind! R.I.P. Bill & Thank you for all that you gave and have left behind!!
