Does anyone remember Ed Meechum? Circa ~ 1975

The name was Beauchamp and that's his profile in the left panel of the second picture above, as already identified.

Ed was a very well regarded talent. He knew the music as well as anyone I ever knew, with the possible exception of one other, and that was essential to success in that format. He also became a budding concert promoter and worked in other markets before meeting an untimely death in the mid 80s. I did not hear about it for years afterward.

I know lots of people from that era remember Ed. I hope we'll hear from some of them in reply.

If I remember correctly, Ed wasn't in the gazebo picture because he was on the air at the time.
Ed was one of the kindest, most decent people I ever had the pleasure of knowing.
I moved back to Dallas in the mid 80's & saw Jim Pruett there when he worked at KEGL. He told me that Ed had been employed there in production at the time he passed away.
