Happy Trails, Skip

We recently lost a beloved member of the Radio Boise family, Otis “Skip” Means. In Skip’s all-too-brief tenure here, he affected everyone he came into contact with, all with boundless energy, a steady supply of wisecracks and an eagerness to contribute in any way he could.

It’s our experiences with persons like Skip that, while breaking our hearts when they pass, also give us the privilege of meeting and growing to love the finest the community has to offer. That Skip would choose to grace us with so much of his valuable time, energy and brightness has made an imprint that will never find a twilight. Thanks to the big guy — who broadcasts now from a higher frequency.

We’re currently working on putting together a special block of programming in Skip’s honor on Radio Boise. This special program will air on Wednesday, February 15th, from noon to 3pm. We’d love a few words and a musical memory with a song request of Skip if you have one, and we hope you can tune in, either on 89.9 or 93.5FM in the Treasure Valley, or stream online.

Skip’s family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Radio Boise. You can either make a song request or submit a memory if you are making a gift, or submit them to wayne@radioboise.org.
