Gerry House Signs Off WSIX With The Bee Gees' 'Stayin' Alive'
December 15, 2010 at 10:44 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Country WSIX/NASHVILLE's long time morning man GERRY HOUSE broadcast his final show TODAY (12/15), and suprised more than a few listeners with THE BEE GEES "Stayin' Alive" as his last song played.
As HOUSE ended his final show, he received an everlasting honor. HOUSE learned that the studio from which he had broadcast the last 15 years of his show will now be called THE HOUSE. The plaque that will be placed above the studio door reads:
Welcome to THE HOUSE
Honoring Gerry House and the House Foundation
If smiles earned a nickel and laughs earned a dime they would be the Richest folks of all time
CLEAR CHANNEL Market Mgr. TOM ENGLISH said “We wanted to ensure that every person who sits in these seats remembers the amazing legacy built here by GERRY, MIKE BOHAN and all who have served in The HOUSE Foundation.”
HOUSE is hanging up his headphones after 30 years in Country radio, citing his desire to devote more time to other major writing projects he is involved in.
"I wanna sleep late, contemplate and feel great," HOUSE said back in SEPTEMBER when he announced his plan to step down. "I will miss everyone on and off the air, but it's time for me to do the other things I think about. The mostest fun ever is working with your friends. I also plan to travel and spend less time with my family."
HOUSE will be inducted into the NAB BROADCASTING HALL OF FAME during the NAB SHOW RADIO LUNCHEON, sponsored by ASCAP, on APRIL 12th, 2011.
