Hall of Famers Present: Patrick Fant, Grego, Lanny Griffith, Doug Harris, Brian Shannon and Dayna Steele
Fans, friends, and alumni of Houston's heritage rocker 101 KLOL gathered on February 5th to share stories and view the artwork of the painter formerly known as Outlaw Radio's Scott T. Phillips. The event, organized by former KLOL promotions guy Doug Harris, was staged during an exhibition of Phillip's work during Wild at Art, benefitting Harris' StellaNova Foundation. Joining the fun were fellow Radio Outlaw Grego, Traffic Master Lanny Griffith, Producer Extraordinaire Brian Shannon, James "Moby" Carney, station owner Jay Jones, GM Patrick Fant, production wiz Mark (Stubblefield) Masters, and record industry pro Patti Martin. Jock-turned writer/producer/stage actress Dayna Steele brought jock-turned TV personality Garth Hemp (now Kemp) as her surprise guest. Identical twins Jerry and Terry Kirksey, actress/model Tiffanie Williams, and Tim (Edwards) Trostle reunited the legendary KLOL promotions department with Doug Harris, their one-time commander-in-chief. Former KLOL jock Chris Alan was on hand to gift the group with t-shirts featuring the iconic Runaway Radio. Counted among those assembled were six members of the Texas Radio Hall of Fame and four former 97 Rock (KSRR-FM Houston) jocks who found their way to KLOL. The rockers hope to meet again during the Texas Radio Hall of Fame's induction weekend, November 5, 2022, in Kilgore, TX.
