Best Radio DJ Denver 2011 - Hal Moore

Readers' Choice: Bret Saunders, KBCO 97.3

Yes, doctor! There is nothing quite as exhilarating as waking up to the jubilant voice of Hal "Baby" Moore on Cruisin' Oldies 950. A seasoned radio vet with a half-century's worth of experience behind the mike, Moore is a living local legend. From his time at KHOW until now, at KRWZ, he's been the trusted on-air companion of several generations of Denverites. He's always a joy to listen to, whether he's sharing his memorable anecdotes from the past or offering insightful details of the songs he's playing. From the excitement in his voice as he pages through the annals of rock, you'd never know that these are tunes he's played a million times over. Hal reminds us of radio the way the way it was meant to be. There's a reason the Broadcast Professionals of Colorado have chosen Hal to enter their Hall of Fame.

I grew up with Hal and Charlie! Remember when they were on the radio on the movie "The Shining" with Jack Nicholson? That was awesome!

Having known Hal Moore since the early 70's KHOW days where he literally owned afternoon drive. - this is a fitting attribute.

One of Hal's greatest talents has been his ability to make his listeners part of the family.

I have run across people in my travels over the years who remembered Hal from Fort Madison, Iowa- before the KHOW days.

When you are good music director, listener and communicator you are a "heck" of DJ

Congrats to Hal.

Congrats, Hal! I can't think of a more deserving guy. I still remember when you and Jay Mack were on KIMN and you both came to our pep rally at North High School. The place went wild. Thanks for doing the Comedy Corner every morning--shades of the Lone Ranger... And Friday morning chats with Charley? Too funny, we need more! Thanks for years of laughter & music!

I moved here in 1968 from a little town in Ohio - can you imagine what it was like for me to suddenly be exposed to Hal and Charley? In my youth "Teen Angel" was banned from the radio - might lead us astray. We were lucky if we could get a Chicago station on a clear night. Then wham - everything and anything goes - not ust the music and all the knowledge,the craziness, , the soap operas they developed, the salute to Friday - the contests - it was all amazing and so extremely loved. I can't remember everything, but it was pure joy I have followed Hal from station to station and was upset when I went on vacation and he was gone - poof. I am glad to see him back where he belongs doing what he does best and I think it's wonderful he has been honored. Thanks for the memories - old and new. It's also nice to know, in this society of disposable marriage that there still is a Lovely Linda of Lakewood.

You mentioned..."From his time at KHOW until now, at KRWZ, he's been the trusted on-air companion". You know Hal actually goes back to the old KIMN days of the 60's here in Denver, that was waaaaay before the "Hal & Charley" days on KHOW.

Hal is indeed a legend and gets my crack outta the sack every morning!
