Thurston Talk features an article on veteran KGY/Olympia personality, Dick Pust.
Pust writes about his memories in his new book, “AM 1240 – Life at a Small Town Radio Station.” “The book was fun to write,” Pust says. “I know of no other book like it. It is designed to show the importance of small-town radio.” He says the book discusses local radio history from his perspective. “It is what KGY meant to the people of Olympia, through my eyes,” he explains. “It’s about people who were from the community.”
Gorham Printing in Centralia is publishing the book. Persons interested in ordering a copy or wanting more information may contact Pust at [email protected]. The current hard cover book is a $75 limited edition for pre-publication sales, estimated to be available around the end of June 2021. Pust hopes to publish a soft cover edition in the future.
