Eric...Thank you for keeping Wayne C's memory alive! My 1st encounter with him was in 1962..he came in to manage KFXD and immediately fired me. I was 18 and Wayne said I sounded "too young" for an MOR station. I came back after a 3 year tour with AFRTS and was immediately hired. I then spent 10 years working for the best boss I ever met. He always had a smile and a frendly word and he was a great teacher. I wonder if those who receive the Radio Wayne awards really know how great a person and broadcaster he really was. I have been out of radio since 1982 but will never forget Wayne Cornils.
