Radio Legend Still Spinning

Dozens gathered to roast disc jockey Tom Perryman on his 80th birthday.

He started his 60 year career at KEBE in Jacksonville, Texas and went on to promote such acts as Jim Ed Brown, Hank Thompson, and even Elvis Presley. 

Six decades later, he can still be heard on KKUS weekday mornings playing classic country and telling you the stories behind the songs.
