Former WLLZ-FM, WABX-FM and WCSX-FM radio personality Bob Bauer passed away July 21 at his home in Pinckney. He was 63 years old.
Bauer was a 1979 graduate of Specs Howard School of Media Arts.
WCSX-FM Program Director Doug Podell, who hired Bauer for afternoons when he was PD at WLLZ, remembers Bauer hosting annual food drives by living in a rented house trailer on a prominent metro Detroit street corner for several weeks during the holiday season. Podell told the Detroit Free Press that Bauer “donated his time energy and effort to do that and it turned out to be a lifetime thing for him.”
