On the "Saturday Afternoon Beach Party" Facebook page it was announced on May 14, 2022 that after "50 years in radio and 46 years with a beach music show. Bill has decided to retire".The post went on to read: "He wants to spend sometime just having fun and enjoying life. He will air his last beach music show at WKRX 96.7 Roxboro May 28th. He has been at the station for 30 years and will always cherish the wonderful memories of his listeners and sponsors. He has enjoyed spending Saturday afternoons providing years of beach music to his many fans that have listened for all those years. Feel free to call him at the station and wish him well. 336-599-0266. He will greatly appreciate it. I have a feeling that you will be hearing from him in the near future. Don’t believe he will ever give up his beach music. He has mentioned also of bringing back our oldies show somehow also."
We'd like to wish him all of the best and thank you for dedication to the Beach Music industry, to radio and to your listeners.
