    Re: Dic Youngs Has Died

    Rest In Peace. I certainly enjoyed listening to him during my time in Iowa (80's-90's). Great personality, both on-air and off...

    Re: Dic Youngs Has Died

    I'm sad to hear this. I've spent MANY hours listening to the Youngster.

    Re: Dic Youngs Has Died

    A very sad day indeed. KIOA should be ashamed for forcing him out. A guy with his credentials should do it until he no longer wants to do it.

    Re: Dic Youngs Has Died

    When I was little, my parents took me through the KIOA broadcast booth at the fair in the afternoons to see Dic Youngs. He would always have a hat, or something else to give me. It got to the point where I would go to the fair just to see Dic Youngs. I thank him for his generosity and the personality he was on the radio. My dad would pick me up from school every afternoon and the Youngster would always be on the radio playing me the hits from my dads' generation. His affect is not only on the baby boomer generation, but also on their children and grandchildren. He is a great Iowan and will be truly missed.

    Re: Dic Youngs Has Died

    He personally knew so many of the great recording artists and I always loved little tidbits he would tell about them. Just interesting info you never heard anywhere else. I don't listen to KIOA as much anymore because I liked it better when they were strictly 50's and 60's. I still listen sometimes, just not as often.

    Re: Dic Youngs Has Died

    Youngsy was such a huge personality in the DM area for so many years, but he always kept his east side pride. I got to know him playing for the high hoopers many years ago, and the big guy could really drain outside shots. He was just a real fun guy to be around in person or thru the airwaves, and just thinking about him puts a smile on your face, but now with a few tears too. God bless his family and may he rest in peace.
