Smith: KSRO's early bird becomes a night owl

David Wesley Page will sleep in a week from Monday.

Page has been an early bird since before he started working mornings at landmark AM station KSRO in 1985 with Steve Garner, Merle Ross and the late, great Jim Grady. He especially cherishes his years co-anchoring with Grady.

"He did the jokes, and I tried to bring us back to he real world," he said.

But morning radio is pretty tough. How'd you like to pull out of bed every weekday at 3?

"I'm in the door at 4, on the air at 6," said David, who also taught broadcasting at Sonoma State for 20 years.

He will retire from KSRO on Friday. Then, no more getting to bed by 8:30.

"It's going to change completely," said David, who's 61. "I'm going to be able to stay up until 9 o'clock now."

IF YOU'RE HOMELESS you're invited to dinner March 28 in Santa Rosa.

"Pasta King" Art Ibleto will prepare a meal to be served at about 4 p.m. on the grounds of Catholic Charities' Family Support Center on A Street. There will be activities for children and advocates of community resources.
