Rick Dees Talks About His Friend George Beasley

When you're in one industry for 50 years you make a lot of friends. Some of those friends turn out to be pretty darn good on the air. Rick Dees is one of those people who became a good friend of the Beasley family and remains close with the family to this day. Dees has a lot of memories and stories to tell about George Beasley in the upcoming issue of Radio Ink that highlights George Beasley's 50 year radio ride. Last night we spoke to Dees about his friendship with the Beasley's and here is just a snippet of what you will hear on November 21st from one of radio's superstars.                 


Our November 21st issue is very special. Not only does it feature George Beasley, and highlight the great accomplishment of five decades in radio, it includes a lot of editorial content you can only read in our digital edition. Our Beasley feature, in the edition, includes more audio like what you've just listened to from Rick Dees. It includes audio from Tommy Edward who was the PD at KCBS when they went after KRTH in Los Angeles and it includes an audio interview with Ann Beasley who was right there with George when he started the company in Benson, NC.
