As the late, great star of WIBA radio, George �Papa Hambone� Vukelich would have put it, �Marty has left the planet.�
Recently, we lost one of the last true gentlemen of Madison commercial radio, Marty �Kay� Knudsvig. Marty delighted in doing the friendly, �next door neighbor� chat show he hosted for years, and was greatly disappointed when the station converted his program into a �stealth infomercial,� wherein his �guests� were business people who paid to join him on the air.
But, pro that he was, he soldiered on. He holds a place high on the list of the many great people I�ve met in my broadcasting career.
Now, he�s sharing a microphone with �Papa,� Jim Mader, Ken Ohst, Cliff Roberts and other legendary Madison voices. Wish I could tune in that station. As Billy Joel�s song said, �Only the good die young.�
