Bill Drake died (lung cancer) Nov 29, 2008
at West Hills Hospital in the San Fernando Valley, near Boss Angeles, California. See Pop Radio Innovator Bill Drake Dies At 71 (KCBS, KCAL-TV), Bill Drake (Wikipedia),
Bill Drake 1937-2008 (Ken Levine), Tribute
to Bill Drake (Ron
Jacobs), Why Bill Drake Still Matters (Jerry Del Colliano) and Big boss man: Bill Drake (Ben Fong-Torres, SF Chronicle).
Braswell recalls: "Phil Yarbrough (the great Bill Drake) started his radio career
at WMGR-AM in Bainbridge, Georgia (he was from nearby Donalsonville, Georgia), then
later worked at WWNS-AM in Statesboro, Georgia, while he was attending (on a
basketball scholarship) Georgia Teachers College (now Georgia Southern University).
At that time, radio was just a hobby, and he had plans to play professional
basketball ... UNTIL he hurt his knee. The rest, as they say, is history. When he
went to WAKE in Atlanta, they wanted him to change his name to Bill BLAKE (to rhyme
with WAKE). He suggested Drake, since it was his mother's maiden name. 'Course,
Blake-Chenault would've been alphabetically correct!"

had been a whirlwind, a world where cart machines have gone from being my daily maintenance
annoyance to multi-thousand dollar doorstops, where pre-emphasis has lost its emphasis to
kbps, and where people who really were excited by new record releases are now more excited
by new revenue opportunities. With the last traces of the old world of broadcasting being
disintigrated with new studios and new technologies, it's hard to imagine what will be
the modus operandi of the industry not ten years down the line, but three. As the initials
'TB' morph from 'talkback' to 'terabyte', one just has to catch one's breath, hit the books
and hold onto your many hats. I've had some great times with remote broadcasting et al.,
but the best part of this job has always been the great engineers and broadcasters I have
met thus far. There really are some wonderful people in this business."
