Comment on Remembering Bart Prater by Mark Thomas Portzer

Thanks Gardner for that great story about Bart. Even though I never had the opportunity to meet Bart, anyone who listened to WROV had to know who Bart Prader was. I too was fortunate enough to go through the broadcast studio about the same time that Bart jumped ship to K-92. It was 1982 and I was hired by Rob O’Brady to do Sunday mornings from 6am to noon, most of it was board operation. Later, I was given the very same shift you had, Sunday mornings from midnight to 6am and honed my skills there to go on to several other stations in the market including WFIR fulltime. Thanks for the great story about Bart. He was indeed the best in our market.
