I would love to see any posts from the past referencing KDAC radio or Charlie Stone or Eloise Keller. The twon just hasn't been the same since Charlie left and KDAC was sold. There really hasn't been local radio in Fort Bragg since.

Oops. I meant to say the town hasn't been the same since the closure of KDAC radio and the departure of Charlie Stone and Ellie. Love or hate Charlie's politics, he was a good person and not mean spirited, not smug at all. I wish that were true about all the other radio station owners and news people in this area, but sadly it is not. So send a good thought up to Charlie and Ellie, and thank you two for always making mornings on the radio in Fort Bragg interesting and fun!

Farina n toast yes, and the orange and white Foremost delivery. Next came the mailman, by now Eloise is signing off, and some Burt Bacharach melody is playing. Down to the company store, then over to Purity, Grandma and I would go. It must be Friday. May the good Lord bless all of us.

I worked at KDAC in 1974. It was my first job away from home, in a new town.I worked 9-1 and 6-10, as I recall. Also helped Ellie with her M-F program screening calls, and got trained to do the Swap Shop. Charlie came up to me in day and said, "You're going to do play-by-play football for FBHS". I took my family back on vacation '04 and saw the station. What a beautiful bldg. completely abandoned. Radio today is machine operated--robot radio--a single corporation can own a zillion of them, all of them cookie-cutter, no personality.
