[Description by Uncle Ricky]

Bill Mouzis passed away January 7, 2013 at age 90. Ron Jacobs wrote what will serve as an excellent introduction to this exhibit, and it is quoted here.

Some of you know of the late Bill Mouzis, others may not. Those of us who worked with him at KHJ Radio in Los Angeles and all who knew him are in mourning over his passing. Back in the mid-Sixties in major broadcast markets such as LA the stations were obligated to utilize union engineers to operate the control boards. At KHJ, for instance, the Boss Jock had but one switch in the on-air studio. It was used to turn the microphone off and on. Bill was the first board operator on The Real Don Steele Show. As in-house production requirements increased Bill became our full time Production Director. I was privileged to write and produce KHJ's non-stop high octane station "promos," always with Bill at the controls.
