RIP Oleo Magneto

He helped us get on the air. He went on the air himself that first week in August, 1984. His program has been a fixture on KABF for 23 years, defying every pigeonhole that ever existed. There was nothing like it on any radio station in the world.

Now he's gone. A re-shuffling of the schedule leaves no room for Sunglasses After Dark.

We'll miss you, Oleo Magneto.

UPDATE: The Observer column in the latest Arkansas Times has this to say on the Oleo dismissal.
Concerned fans can write to: KABF Board of Directors / 2101 S. Main St. / Little Rock, AR 72206.
