City Leaders Honor Local Radio Personality

For half a century, one voice has remained a constant on Lubbock airwaves. On Thursday, Lubbock city leaders wanted point out that fact, live on morning radio. Mayor Marc McDougal, Mayor Pro-Tem Tom Martin and City Councilman Gary Boren made a surprise visit to the studios of KRBL in search of Paul Beane. The trio wanted to make the most of this golden opportunity and roast the rebel leader himself, in a manner befitting his 50-years on the air.

McDougal said, "He is the only self professed genius with an IQ of 60 and no one ever questioned Paul R. Beane's intelligence because no one ever mentions it, not even his three friends and 16 radio listeners."

The man of the hour was moved to tears upon hearing the Mayor's proclamation. You can hear Paul Beane each weekday morning, on 105.7 FM, the Rebel.
