ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — A voice very familiar to long-time KMOX listeners, Bruce Bradley, has died. The 79-year-old passed away Saturday in Lake St. Louis.
“There’s a number of people, a small handful if you will, who are so deeply remembered as personalities on the radio,” St. Louis Historian Frank Absher told KMOX. “It was fitting he was on KMOX because KMOX was such a powerhouse in the eighties.”
Absher said Bradley reinvented himself when he came to St. Louis and was paired with Anne Keefe.
“Few people realized until he mentioned it that he had been a top 40 disc-jockey in Boston for a while,” Absher said. “What we got to hear wasn’t some canned or rehearsed radio personality.”
“(He was) a real person with a quick mind, and a wonderful wit; just a funny funny man.”
Bradley’s booming voice filled the KMOX airwaves from 1986-1992.
He had recently moved back to the St. Louis area from Las Vegas and was living with his daughter.
The official cause of death is not known at this time.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
