GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Longtime Great Falls radio broadcaster Dave Wilson has died at age 75.

His wife, Cheryl Wilson, says he died Sunday morning in a Great Falls hospital of complications related to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Dave Wilson’s 40-year broadcasting career began in 1969 at Great Falls’ KMON-AM. In 1972, he started the program “Grass Roots Gold,” which is still on the air.

Cherry Creek Radio operations manager Skip Walters tells KFBB-TV Wilson was a great storyteller and his voice connected with the Great Falls community.

Wilson was born in Hamilton, Alabama, and moved to Montana in 1968.

He retired from radio in 2009 but continued to broadcast online at davewilsoncountry.com.

Services will be held Saturday at 10 a.m. at Great Falls’ First United Methodist Church.
