I worked at KTSM with Jud Milton. He was asked by management to train me on how to record a radio spot. He was a little grumpy and grouchy, because I did not catch on to his instructions right away. But, after a few months of going into the radio production room, Jud became a good friend and one of the best mentors I have ever had. I still think of him every now and then, and I can still hear his deep voice and remember his love of the big band sounds. He was a gold mine of information about anything musical. I will never forget him!

I had the privilege of having Jud Milton as my producer of PM El Paso SportsTalk that I hosted until the day he retired from KTSM radio on November 22, 1991. The reason why I know the exact date is because Jud was my hour long sports guest on my show that day. Jud told me that in his longtime radio broadcasting of sports, he had never granted an interview before. "This was going to be his first and his last." I still have the 60-minute cassette tape of that show and would love to give his daughter a copy of it. I was very fortunate in my early sportscasting career to have known and worked with Jud Milton. He was one of the best.
