Gene and Julie Start Cooking, KKDA Lost Soul and Ron Chapman Goes Strokin’

Ron Chapman

Dallas radio started 2013 with changes to the neighborhood. KVIL’s morning team, Gene and Julie, are off the air and putting their noggins together for a new restaurant (Nancy will no doubt have deets in the days ahead).

KKDA’s R&B sound and Willis Johnson have been replaced by a Korean-format, thanks to the sale of the station. Soul 730 is more Seoul-oriented.

And former KVIL godfather-of-morning-drive Ron Chapman admitted that he stroked his way into the holidays in a hospital bed. It evidently didn’t affect his sense of humor at all.
