       Bill Wade, Lorenzo's crutches, Merrill Kelly, Jeb Henley, Rocky Bartram, Robin Harris, Lorenzo, Indi Higham,
Bob Madge, on front steps of KTAO, circa 1971

So long, Bill Wade  (April 16, 1952 - August 20, 2014). You were loved by all.

NOTE: There was a KTAO Reunion Party held in San Jose during the summer of 2013. There may eventually be another. If you were on the air at KTAO during the Lorenzo Milam era, you will be invited. Contact us by email to get on the email invitation list.

The following 190 or so individuals below either had programs on radio station KTAO in Los Gatos, or were essential to keeping the station running. If you had a program and are not listed, please send us an email along with an anecdote concerning something that happened at KTAO during your time there. We'll put your name on the list right away. Those volunteers marked with a (BR) after their names were there during the Bill Ryan years only. Those market with a (†) after their names have passed away. Those marked with a (*) have been in touch with us. We have more than 150 photos of KTAO people, taken by Pete Blind. Many in the photos are unidentified, but those with a "P" beside their names have been. If you'd like a proofsheet with all photos, contact us.
