Share your memories of Wally Derleth


The staff of Red River Radio is deeply saddened to announce the loss of our friend and colleague Wally Derleth who passed suddenly in his home the morning of Saturday, January 22. Wally was the beloved host of Evening Jazz and Operations Manager since 1999. We will miss him greatly, and we ask that you keep his wife Beverly, his family, and the staff in your thoughts and prayers at this time. We will be honoring his life and memory over the coming weeks. Red River Radio has set up a special phone number: 318-933-2636 for recording and leaving memories or stories of Wally that can be included in a special tribute week of Evening Jazz that we will air the week of February 7.
