Dick Foley & The Brothers Four

I would like to add another Northwest group to Kirk Wilde’s list. Dick Foley and I were childhood friends and I so admire all of his wonderful achievements with the Brothers Four and his accomplishments after leaving the group. At the link below there’s a sample of The Brother’s Four and their fantastic talent!

Bruce Caplan is a Seattle native with very eclectic interests. Back in the 70’s he was the sponsor of a 40’s music radio show on KXA in Seattle. When he watched the movie Titanic staring Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck in 1953 Caplan became fascinated with the horrible tragedy. In 1996 his book on the subject was released. It’s now in the 20th printing. A decade ago Caplan began to do a weekly radio show on KIXI. The program is called Radio Trivia and he weekly brings to his audience the best of the best of the comedies from the golden age of radio. Because of Caplan’s interest in true crime, he began a second program on KIXI called Crime Club. On this show he often discuses events with authors of books on criminal subjects and weekly plays the great radio mysteries from long ago. Bruce has lectured throughout our nation and on scores of cruises. His greatest thrill is searching through the goldmine of radio gems of mysteries and comedies from yesteryear and bringing them back to an eager audience of young and old. --- View other articles by Bruce Caplan

  1. Dick Foley hosted NW Afternoon in 1985 with a female co-host. We lived in Renton in the 80’s. Our 7 year old son, Ryan, was asked by his karate instructor, Kelly Jenkins, to appear with him on that program to highlight safety and self protection. Dick and his co-host were highly professional and kind. Ryan performed his karate moves and role played a scene depicting someone attempting to kidnap him. He fought him off. It was hilarious and fun. The gun safety expert, Chris Brown, died several years later while carrying a buck down a mountain he had bagged. Sadly and ironically Chris’s rifle went off and shot him in his heart. His safety was off.
