Remembering KPUG’s Dave Hall

Dave Hall, a fixture in Bellingham radio for 40 years, has passed away.  He worked exclusively for San Juan Broadcasting ( KPUG-AM and KAFE-FM). Dave was a deejay, program director, chief engineer, salesman, sales manager and eventually part owner of the company.

Everybody who knew Dave agrees he was a friendly and nice guy, who was very honest. You could always count on Dave to do the right thing. Several years ago, created from archival audio supplied by Dick Stark, I produced a short video of a Dave Hall spot dating back to his earlies days in radio — 1960. In light of Dave’s passing, I am featuring that here.
