One half of the legendary “Hal and Dick” team on WBAP has passed away.  Earlier today he suffered a heart attack and died.

Recently Dick had been hosting a morning oldies show on KLDE 104.9FM in Eldorado, TX.

Dick Siegel was Hal Jay’s on-air partner from 1981 until 2003.  While providing traffic information from his helicopter, Dick was part of the popular “Sam From Sales” comedy bits that aired for many years on the station.
