Gene Chase - 2006

​Those listeners who remember Gene Chase from his years of beautiful music station KCFM may have trouble thinking of him in terms of anything but a deep-voiced, classy announcer filled with musical knowledge. But his alter ego had been at the forefront for awhile on WIL, where he was known as “Big Daddy-O from All-Night Raddio.”

​Chase went the extra mile to hook up with virtually every musical act that came through St. Louis, interviewing them at the Chase Club or Municipal Opera, then playing the tapes on his shows to share those moments with listeners.

​After leaving the air he continued in the business selling advertising.
