KROQ BIDS FAREWELL TO ONE OF THE FAMILY
4/20/15

"Spacin'" Scott Mason, a longtime player at L.A. flagship station KROQ, has died. Mason "a fixture" at the station from its earliest days, according to a Facebook post from fellow KROQ vet Richard Blade; an on-air standard-bearer and programmer, he also helped create (and initially hosted) what became the hugely successful Love Line call-in show and served as West Coast Director of Engineering for CBS Radio.

"He will be sadly missed."
