“Luther” goes national on 92nd birthday: Listen!

Sunday March 9, 2014 marks Luther Masingill’s 92nd birthday, as our incredible local broadcaster continues his world-record 74th year on WDEF Radio (and soon to be 60 years on Channel 12 too)!

One of America’s top radio hosts, Phlash Phelps of Sirius XM’s 60s on 6 devoted part of his show on Friday to Luther, and to Chattanooga.  Phlash’s mother grew up in the Bonny Oaks area of Chattanooga, so Phlash has heard about Luther all of his life.  Phlash is a true radio guy, so he understands and appreciates Luther’s amazing achievements.  On the 60s on 6 channel, one of Sirius XM’s top attractions among its 26 million subscribers nationwide, Phlash interviewed Luther about his life and career.  As always, Luther provided a few laughs during the segments, which totaled about 7 minutes.

I know some folks who were afraid they wouldn’t get to hear Luther in the national spotlight, because they don’t have access to satellite radio.  Well, here it is!  Click the YouTube link below, watch, enjoy and share!  Thanks so much to Phlash Phelps and Sirius XM 60s on 6 for making this happen, and to Luther, for for being our friend for 92 years….and counting.
