Condolences

Condolence From: Dan Woodall
Condolence: I am so sorry to hear of Robert's passing, just heard today (11/16/17). We had a wonderful friendship the last few years of his life. We both worked in broadcasting in Springfield and had great fun sharing war stories of our past.

Though we had a bit of a falling out in the past year, I have still prayed for him much of the time. I do know he was a Christian and he will be waiting for us up in Glory!

Until then, so long Old Friend.

Dan

Condolence: Robert was a long-time friend of CD Warehouse. We will miss his smile, his home-cooked jokes, and his big heart. God Bless you Robert.

Condolence: Was very sorry to hear of his passing....I have known Bob from about the 7th grade...his first start in radio was in about 1962, and was a 5 watt AM crystal controlled unlicensed radio transmitter that he put together himself from a kit, and operated from his house on Normal, just a block south of what is now called MSU...he called it "KOOL" radio..I don't remember what frequency it was on...but it was within the normal AM broadcast band.... it was all legal because of the low power output.....he entertained listeners in about a three to four block radius from his house....he operated the station every day for at least one summer, and possibly more..I was also the paperboy for that neighborhood...and I carried a small transistor radio with me in my shirt pocket along my paper route and would listen to "KOOL". Bob developed his skills on-air to a small neighborhood audience before he got into "the real thing". A few years later I also worked with him at several local radio stations... he had his own ways...and definately "marched to the beat of a different drummer" and was a very likeable and talented guy....He was one of a kind for sure....RIP Bob Brite...and Godspeed my friend......

Condolence: Bob was one fun and funny guy in Mrs. Simmons English class. A guy we will call Larry who sat in front of him had very curly and thick hair. Bob was known to blow spit balls of paper through a straw into Larry's hair without Larry knowing it. Larry would cruise school for the rest of the day with little paper balls on the back of his head. Yes, Bob was a prankster.

Condolence: I will miss my friend...the boy who lived behind my childhood home. He was brilliant and had a great sense of humor. I hope he has found peace in the hereafter. So glad I talked to him a few days before he left us. He will be talking and playing records and wearing that hat that he wore so well. RIP, my friend. Karen Sue Morton Yancey.

Condolence From: Bob Stephenson
Condolence: So many memories. The haunted house in his parents basement (now a parking lot at MSU). Sneaking into the MSU football stadium on Sat mornings with a stack of new comics and monster mags, and reading them in the broadcast booth high above the seats. Recording "Ahhhh gooooody goooooody goooooody" one crazy night at KICK and then he plays it forever between songs. One highlight of interest to MSU alumni. Back around 1968 the MSU (then SMSU) basketball team beat SIU there. A David vs Golliath game! Bob was on live on KICK and began making phone calls and promoting a celebration over the air. When the team returned home early the next morning the bus took them to McDonald Arena, which was packed with crazy fans, news media, and just a lot of people wanting to love on the team. Bob did all of that - on his own - and probably never got any credit. I personally will miss Bob but will always have the memories.
