 TBR– A memorial service for radio icon Doug Banks.  Friends and family members will gather on Saturday, April 16 at Sparkman Hillcrest Funeral Home & Memorial Park, 7405 West Northwest Highway in Dallas, TX 75225.

It was on Monday when we reported that the industry veteran and syndicated radio icon show host Doug Banks died in Miami, Florida. According to Radio Facts, “Banks suffered for many years with Diabetes.”

Banks was 57 years old.

I actually had the pleasure of working with Doug about ten years ago for about five years, as the Richmond morning show producer of the show and News Director.  He made several trips to Richmond, including a stop with his morning show at the Altria Theater.

His passing is truly a great loss to the Music Industry. He is survived by his wife, Wendy, and four children.

May we keep his family in our prayers.
