Don't remember any lead stories, but I do remember that, in the late '70s, I
used to listen a little station in Forrest City, Ark., KXJK (950), that
occasionally read the obituaries from the local paper right after the news.
KXJK was a country station, and I vividly recall one morning on which the DJ
on duty came out of the obits with the Statler Brothers' "I'll Go To My
Grave (Loving You)."
