Noon Meeting News – April 3, 2018 – Larry Hansgen – WHIO Radio Personality

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father darkness can not defeat darkness, only light can do that. Likewise hate will never defeat hate. Only Your love can do that. Lincoln made the point when he said,” if I make a friend of my enemy have I not defeated him?” Shed Your spirit on us to shed Your light on our dark problems. Have us love one another to show others how to live. When we meet a person for the first time, help us to not make a quick judgement, but
remember that there is nothing in a caterpillar that would make us think of a butterfly Amen!

Jeff Papanek Retirement

Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Captain Jeff Papanek after 31 years of service is retiring from his position at the Sheriff’s office. He has been a CNO member since 7/17/2014. He plans on finding a new position with the township soon. He thanked Jess Lightle for being the best boss ever. President McAlpine thanked Jeff for all the wonderful “interactions” he has had with the Sheriff’s Office over the last couple of decades while he has been driving around town. Captain Jeff Papanek received a standing ovation from the 80 members and guests as a way of thanking him for his service to our community.

Today’s Speaker

Scott Langer introduced today’s speaker, Larry Hansgen, long time WHIO Radio Personality, the voice of the UD Flyers and a stand-up comic. Scott first made sure we knew that our original speaker cancelled at the last minute and after just 25 phone calls to others to fill in he came to Hansgen who graciously agreed to speak.

Larry, who has spoken to us in the past, went through the events that led him to become involved in the radio business. He was very funny and there were several entertaining stories.

It was an intricate story how he got into radio and ended up in Dayton. He began with his NSA interviews during his Senior year at Bowling Green University. It involved California and the Farsi language. Fortunately, he was not offered this job.

His radio career started after graduation in 1979 in Bryan, Ohio as a high school sports announcer.

He has been with WHIO radio for 37 years and has been involved in all kinds of jobs. He credits his longevity to being flexible and taking on all kinds of different positions and responsibilities.

To become the voice of the UD Flyer’s, Larry had to jump through several hoops. He and Bucky Bockhorn had to record several auditions on cassette tapes covering the play by play of inner squad scrimmage games.

Larry has seen a lot of places in the world. What he values even more is all of the interesting people he was able to meet along the way.

Thank you Larry for informing and entertaining us today!
