My love for radio came from the idea that you could be in Fort Worth and have people across the country hear your voice over the airwaves. I grew up listening to Bill Mack on WBAP, and still associate him with clear, moonlit late night drives scanning the dial. #RIPBillMack https://t.co/iPdrQGXNcM

Rest In Peace Bill Mack. You will he missed. You got a lot of us home safely driving through the night from gigs. “ The Country Roads Show” and “ Midnight Cowboy Trucking Show”. And a great songwriter as well. “Blue”.

Sad to learn of the passing of country music radio legend and songwriter Bill Mack @WBAP247NEWS. My brother @rwhampton and I grew up with him. We’d go to sleep with him on the radio, and he’d still be up talking and playing tunes as we worked our paper route at dawn.
