Remembering Robert David Cupit, Jr. of Natchez, Mississippi

I became a friend of Bob Cupit when I hired him to manage the first radio station that I owned - KVLA 1400AM in Vidalia, Louisiana.   He was a musician, vocalist, disc jockey, and radio station manager, and more!  He is missed.  Pray for the family.
