Condolences to family and friends of longtime KLKC-A-F/PARSONS, KS co-owner and host GENE JOSLIN, who died WEDNESDAY (3/18) at 90, according to the PARSONS SUN.
JOSLIN, a PARSONS native who worked at stations in JOPLIN, MO, JUNCTION CITY, KS, and ELGIN, IL before coming back home to PARSONS, was the first host at KLKC when it signed on the air on OCTOBER 26, 1948. He bought a piece of the station in 1955 when CAROL COMBS bought one of the original partners' interests out. The station was sold in 2004.
