Condolences to the family and friends of LOU “FATHA” THIMES, who KTVI-TV/ST. LOUIS reports has died.
“THIMES was a mainstay in the ST. LOUIS radio broadcast industry for over 50 years," notes FOX-2 TV, adding he "started his radio career 1952 in OKINAWA, JAPAN but started in ST. LOUIS in 1956 and served for years with popular 60s radio stations like KXLW, KWK, and KADI. But generations of listeners remember him best for KATZ-A 1600 playing Blues and Gospel music for over 50 years."
