3 Tributes for “William “Chilly Willy” Dunlop

    Willie, thanks for being part of our radio gang. The on-air give-and-take with you was a ton of fun. You gave us a hard time, and we gave it right back, always with good intention. We were truly brothers in that sense. And I can’t thank you enough for the Native-American names you bestowed upon our crew. I especially appreciated when you shortened my name from Grey Hawk Wind Pants to just Grey Hawk. (Although, Willie, I must tell you that I still wear them). Even when you were facing some health issues, on-air and off, you ALWAYS put on a positive face and certainly never were short on joy. That big laugh of yours is fuel for the soul. Rest in Peace, Brother Willie.
