R.I.P.: Dusty Rhodes, Longtime VA Radio Personality
Dusty Rhodes, a longtime radio personality whose voice was known throughout the Shenandoah Valley, has died at the age of 74, WHSV TV3 reports.
Rhodes, who worked in local radio since 1966, retired from WSIG 96.9 in January of this year.
Paul McDaniel, also known as Uncle Pauly, the program director for WSIG, told WHSV Rhodes left because of health reasons, but he wanted everyone to be happy about his retirement.
For a day in January, to honor Rhodes' retirement, WSIG rebranded their station in his name and became Dusty 96.9.
Rhodes passed away peacefully at his Elkton home on Wednesday.
