Dallas’ fondness and love for radio began in about 1960 while he was a student at Brownwood High School when a friend allowed him in the radio studio of KBWD-AM to learn the workings of a radio station. From that day Dallas has been associated with this radio station and has held many jobs including DJ, Program Director, News Director and Sports Director.
Dallas joined the play-by-play radio broadcast team for Brownwood High School football in 1963 and has been the Voice of the Brownwood Lions for now going on 54 years.
