Shreveport Radio Legend Frank Page Has Died
For decades, Frank Page woke up the Arklatex each morning on KWKH Radio. Best known as the man who introduced Elvis Presley to the world on the stage of the Louisiana Hayride, “Uncle Frank” as most of us knew him, died Wednesday night, January 9, 2013 at the age of 87. Uncanny how he passed the day after what would have been Elvis’ 78th birthday.
Frank was a highly awarded radio broadcaster, having been inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame, the Louisiana Broadcasters Hall of Fame and the Wall of Fame in Shreveport.
However, amidst all these accolades, Frank’s proudest accomplishment was his marriage to wife Helen. He was just that kind of man. Always smiling, forever kind and always Frank.
We’ll miss you Uncle Frank. Thank you for all the incredible memories!
Funeral details are pending.
