Dixon's Return To Salem Delayed By Volcano

SALEM RADIO NETWORK Central Region Affiliate Relations Manager LARRY DIXON's first duty upon his return to the company was to promptly get stranded in ENGLAND due to the volcanic ash cloud from ICELAND blanketing most of EUROPE. DIXON was supposed to be back at SRN MONDAY after his two-year stint as morning man at CITADEL's Oldies KPMZ (PLATINUM 96.7, now Talk WBAP-F)/DALLAS, but he ended up stuck in the U.K. after a family vacation.
SRN VP/News & Talk Programming TOM TRADUP tells ALL ACCESS that DIXON's luckier than most stranded travelers, since his mother-in-law lives in the LONDON area and DIXON and his wife thus have a place to stay while waiting for a flight home, which is presently scheduled for SUNDAY morning. TRADUP jokes, "In addition to welcoming LARRY back to SRN, I am memorializing him as having concocted the greatest excuse of all time for being late to work: the volcano grounded my plane."
