DALLAS (AP) - Longtime Dallas country music radio host Terry Dorsey has died, just months after retiring. He was 66.

KSCS radio station says Dorsey died Saturday night of apparent natural causes at his farmhouse outside of Peoria, Illinois.

He retired in December after more than 40 years in radio, spending the last 26 years as the morning host for KSCS.

He started his radio career in the late 1960s, working in various cities across the U.S. He arrived in Dallas in 1980 to do mornings on KPLX and then moved across town to KSCS in 1988.

The station said Dorsey was a Vietnam War veteran, serving as a combat engineer in the U.S. Army.

Despite having formally retired in December, Dorsey still contributed to the morning show via live and recorded segments.
