Payne continued, “I want to say a very special thank you to the wonderful staff that has worked with us for 39 years. Thanks also going out to the sponsors and loyal listeners. It has been a pleasure, honor and privilege to have served the public for these many years. We hope we have been able to come into your homes, automobiles and businesses by radio with programming that was entertaining and informative.
