Dedicated in memory of Jim Collins


Tim Kelly followed in his father's footsteps into radio. His Dad had done mornings at WJR in Detroit and later managed WYSL in Buffalo, where Tim got his on-air start. Other stops along the way included KTSA / San Antonio, WKBW / Buffalo and KTLK / Denver.

Tim joined WPGC from WCFL / Chicago in early 1976 for mornings after Columbus left for WLS. He stayed until The Great Strike That Struck Out in May of 1977. He later worked at KFI with his wife Evelyn (of Money Girl fame) and did mornings at the Beat, KKBT.



Tim writes:

Thanks for all the materials! I came to WPGC from WCFL in Chicago. I went up to WRKO after it became clear that we were never coming back from the strike, and first did afternoons, and then mornings. Ev was my sidekick / traffic girl, with her using the name Beverly Hudson.

We then went on to KFI / LA for 3 years, to do Tim and Ev til' late 81, and then I went back to doing a solo act on KIIS-FM, til '87 when Lehman and I merged our 2 small syndication companies to form Premiere. I'm currently the chairman and CEO of KB Global, a fast food franchising company I started with my brother Terrance. KB franchises a concept called Great Wraps! to the LA and Orange County ares. We have 12 restaurants.

My remaining media projects are, All Comedy Radio, to whom I am senior advisor, and a partner in the venture (couldn' t stay away from comedy, my first love) and Exec VP / Member of the board for Vital Options International, producers of the Group Room, America's only Cancer talk and advocacy program, heard on 100 stations nationwide, and across Europe.

Our home in LA burned to the ground in the Woolsey Canyon wildfire of 2018, and literally every scrap of memorabilia I had from my career went up in flames with the house! So Nice to hear this stuff from one of the best periods of time in my career.

I loved the Pig as we affectionately called 'PGC and so many great memories with Jim Collins, Big Ron O'Brien, Dino DelGallo, Carla, and Uncle Bill Prettyman, just to name a few! Been great fun listening again!
