Beth officially kicked off the continuous Christmas music for 2013 with a little help from Cory the Elf, better
known as Cory McCloskey from Fox 10 Arizona Morning. Beth and Cory pulled the candy cane switch to start
the music,on the center plaza at Kierland Commons, one of Beth's favorite Christmas shopping spots!
And, we have a winner for our $2000 Christmas Kick-off from One Stop Title Loans... Eileen Merold of Mesa!
Eileen was the 99th caller once the Christmas music kicked off with our traditional favorite, It's the Most
Wonderful Time of the Year, from Andy Williams. Enjoy!
Bill Austin, the original F.O.B.
June 2nd 2010 saw the passing of our
beloved friend Bill Austin.
We honored his memory with a wonderful
and endearing tribute show that you can
hear in it's entirety.
Also, the Bill Austin Memorial Scholarship
was established, through Bill's estate
and ASU. With a generous donation from
spiritandword.org, the scholarship will be
awarded annually for many years to come!
Our special song for Bill:
Somewhere Over The Rainbow
