WAKG music director and MusicRow radio reporter Alan Rowe died Thursday, July 23, at age 66, following a brief battle with cancer.
Rowe spent part of his career at WDVA and WYPR before joining Danville, Virginia’s WAKG in 1992. He started as the station’s Music Director and nighttime air time personality, then moved into middays where he entertained the “at work” crowd for over 25 years.
Over the past two years, he also became a presence at WAKG sister station WBTM. An avid supporter of music, Rowe was also a bass player himself and performed in local bands including The Flaming Blue Iguanas, KICKS, and ZMAX.
A Memorial Service is planned for Thursday, Aug. 13 at Norris Funeral Home, Mt. Hermon Chapel, in Danville, Virginia.
