Last week I ran into an old friend, Andy Decker. If you recall, Andy worked for WRBI in its early days as a DJ. However, he is remembered more as a sports announcer. Andy and I did many football and basketball games together in the 80’s. Andy continued to work in the radio field until a few years back when some health problems forced him to retire.Andy had one of those voices that was made for radio. Even when the game was close and the crowd noise was high, his voice still came through loud and clear. When he was not doing sporting events–just being a DJ–his voice was soft and pleasant.This former student of mine surprised all of us when he chose this as a career. Andy was shy in the classroom, but behind the mic he was very confident and you could tell that in his delivery. One of my old teachers was very wise when he said “never try to guess what a high school student will grow up to be. You will usually be wrong.” Thanks, Andy, for bringing back good memories!
