I followed the Hal and Jay show for many years and caught Jays country music radio after they .he was a treasure. D.F.Dar Cone.
Harmon and Siegel lasted only 2 days at THE RANCH Ft Worth, good thing cause I couldnt keep up! Siegel and Heywood in the afternoon was pure illegal fun. No rules. Thanks Dick.
I moved here from Minnesota and loved to listen to the Hal and Dick Show. He could brighten the cloudiest of days. RIP and your family and fellow listeners will never forget the good times.
I am very sorry for your loss
Hal and Dick were the first I listened to in 1981 when I moved to the Metro-plex.Dick was so good along with Hal and Sam from Sales. He will be missed.
Larry and I are so grateful that our live"s crossed paths. He was a sweet person and so much fun to be around. We met him when he came to KLDE in West Texas. We'll never forget him. God bless his family
Dick Siegel was one of the first people I met when I moved to Dallas in the late 70's. What a character he was! He had a radio show on wknds on KLIF at the time, and I found we shared a love of music. Me and my brother were both lucky enough to fly with him when he did his morning traffic reports, and he was so funny it's definitely something I'll never forget. My prayers go out to his wife and family, for I'm sure there's a huge presence in their lives they're missing. Much love to you Dick.
I know my brother Hank is one of many who greeted you at the gates of Heaven. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends left behind.
I like so many other remember the great days of the Hal and Dick show with Sam from Sales, Willie Landem, Elvis reporting from different place with a jello donut and others. You were great. But on of my fondess merories is the road trip you, David Cooksey and I took when David lost his youngest son. You knew that David needed to get away and I thing you just used the excuse that you wante to go to Montano to see your home place. We had a great time but never got past Colorado. Thanks to you I saw most of Colorado. I also cherish the time I flew with you in Jetcopter 820.Dick you were the greatest and we will truly miss you! God Bless you and your family.
RIP Brother, We shared a few good ones in
our day. Never forget you.
Dick Siegel was the greatest. Thanks so much for all the laughter and joy you brought to others. Mr. Siegel you started my day off right and with a smile on my face. God Bless the Siegel family, you are all in my thoughts in prayers. May God give you peace and comfort during this difficult time.
Heaven will never be the same since your arrival! I wonder how one liners you've used. Love you and was honored to have you in our family. May the Lord give strength to Jeanne as well as the family and friends that will miss him. Until we meet again. ~Brenda
Spent many an road trip to west texas listening to Hal and Dick. My Dad was one of your greatest fans and always said..."If you want to know the traffic, listen to WBAP, they are never wrong". RIP Dick, you will be missed.
I came from the UK to live in Ft Worth in 1989 & discovered the twice daily radio show. I loved the jokes, music & everything on WBAP. Shame it has changed so much to just be about sports nowadays?
rest in peace dick old friend johnny holt the english man
Back in the day....1/2 of the greatest radio program ever, Hal and Dick!! Mornings were never the same without Dick Seigel. Who needed coffee or cereal to get the day started. Thanks for all of the wonderful memories you two have given so many people. R.I.P. Mr. Dick Seigel. Sending love and strength to Jeanne.
Dick Siegel was as real as life can get. You never knew what to expect listening to Hal and Dick except that what ever happened was going to be funny.
Siegel's tremendous level of energy and constant thought made me wonder how he could do all of that and fly a helicopter. It was more than obvious that he had great humor. Sitting at stop lights you could look over at the car nest to you and see the occupants laughing as hard and you did.
Thanks Dick and fly faster through the heavens.
I also wanted to express my love and sorrow for my wonderful step mother,Jeanne who has brought many years of joy to my fathers life in companionship, friendship and pure love, I will always love you for that and pray God carries you through this, for I share your sorrow @-;--
Dick and I were friends for almost 40 years. When my traffic plane was down, I flew with Dick and we had a great time. My years at KBOX paralleled his years at WBAP. Dick's "retirement" to Eldorado gave listeners there a sense of the joy Dick found in country music and entertaining so many listeners. I have lost lots of radio friends through the years... Ron Rice, Joe Long, Dick Moore, Russ Knight, Ken Knox, and others. The list of radio greats, including Dick Siegel, that I have known and worked with and respected, is long. I feel very fortunate to have known Dick and all of them.
When we moved to Keller in 1987 I found Hal and Dick on WBAP. I am telling you, that was some of THE BEST radio ever. So funny and so genuine. Loved it. There hasn't been anything close to that since. He leaves a lasting legacy. My deepest sympathy to the family.
Dick was a north Texas radio legend and a personal friend. He brought a bright spot to many lives for many decades and will be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathies to his family. Thelma L. Kobeck, Hawk Kennedy, and Ruby Kobeck; Kennedale, TX email@example.com
Loved the Hal and Dick show. Lots of memories and never forgot him when he left WBAP. Prayers for the family.
I listened to Hal and Dick for many years while traveling to my work and was really bummed when I couldn't get the signal in the morning due to being too far away from the station. Thanks for the many years of easy listening and lots of laughing!!!
It's mind-boggling to even think about the number of people Dick Siegel touched with his jokes, traffic reports and kindness. It's more amazing to consider that he flew his helicopter, provided traffic reports and told jokes -- all without assistance.
My family was just one of the many families that were touched by Hal & Dick for so many many wonderful years. It wasn't the same when you left WBAP! As others have stated, our prayers for the the family are extended with love and know that he truly will not be forgotten! Not Siegel! How could you ever forget a legend.

My favorite all time radio personality. There has never been nor will be another like him. He is Heaven's gain and our loss.
A definite north Texas icon he will be missed,I had just found he was at the radio station in Eldorado and had been listening online before I went to work we lost a true legend.
So sorry for your loss. I loved listening to Dick on WBAP. He always kept me laughing. Have really missed him and that helicopter!
He was truly one of a kind. The world won't ever be the same again but neither will Heaven. Until we meet again...we love and miss you, Uncle Dick.
my heart goes out to my sister Kristin Dawn whoss h east is completely broken over the loss of our Dad! My brother Ronnie too!
I always started my day with the Hal And Dick show. It made the day brighter. The one thing that sticks out in my memory is how during the floods of the late 1980's how Dick risked his own life to rescue people ( I believe it was a mother and child ) from a car that was being washed away in fast moving waters. You will be missed very much.
Dear Siegel Family, Just want to thank you for all the laughter and joy this man brought to me and family. I'm 64 years of age and have been listening to WBAP since a kid in 1955, Hal & Dick were the Golden Years of WBAP, pre Political Correctness. Dick helped lower my blood pressure on many occasions when stuck in traffic in DFW area with his humor. What a blessing Dick was to all. God Bless. Dwane Simmons.
Prayers to you and your family Jeannie. James & I are so sorry for your loss.
Dick, thank you for always working on Christmas so my late husband could be home with me and our son. You were truly a great friend.
It brings joy to my heart to hear such wonderful and loving comments about my husband, Dick! He was my world and I loved him deeply. I love that I know with all confidence that he is in Heaven with my sister, Jatonne. The Lord has taken him home but my love for him is everlasting and I'm looking forward to joining him again one day. I love you so very much, Dick and I always will!!
Sieg, you're one of the true plank owners of WBAP. You helped get it to it's legendary status of "We Bring A Program" as stated once by a former President. You, Hal, Steve, Sam From Sales were a favorite among many. Sieg, we love you and you'll be missed! I pray that God will comfort and ease their hearts in this time of sorrow. May you stay alive flying in our hearts and joyous memories we all have.
A lot of the farmers in Mason County would stop their tractors from 5:10 to 5:30 because if they didn't, there is no tellin' what they would run over listening to WBAP...Hal, Dick and "Sam from Sales". Thank you for making me laugh...for making feel good...for good clean humor!!!

Thursday, Jeanne and the entire WBAP crew lost a true hero and legend from 1981-2003. Hal Jay and Dick Siegel was part of the morning 6-9AM and 3-6PM drive playing country music before it went to total news/talk format. Dick Siegel died of a heart attack. Dick was voted pilot of the year for rescuing a stranded family and a farmer from rising flood water. He was a loving husband, a super down to earth funny as all get out great friend, and a real aviator in sense of being at one with the JetRanger. He could fly so low the rotor blades could make for great tree trimming. I ask all of my fb friends keep Jeanne and the entire WBAP family in your thoughts and prayers. "Sieg" was truly one of a kind. Rest in eternal peace my friend. When we hear helicopter rotors making a "whomp, whomp, whomp" type sound we know it's your way of reminding us that you are alive and flying in our hearts and memories. My sincerest and utmost condolences on your loss Jeanne and I pray that our Heavenly Father above will bring you warming comfort and healing during this time of mourning. Know that we all are mourning with you as you're not alone and he will never be forgotten. God bless you! Ps. "Sieg, you'll be missed"
I listened to Hal & Dick for years. My kids grew up listening to them. I was one of the scanner listeners. I had a blast. Dick was such so much fun to listen to, even tho a lot of it was R rated. I'm just in shock to see that Sieg is gone now. My thoughts a prayers to the family. Sieg will be missed. DonnaBe
I want to Thank You for all the good times. The first time i met yo and had done some pictures for you. the first time i flew with you and when my son kris that was deaf he was 5 at the time you took to him and we took him one morning and he was hooked. will never forget all the time we had together and all the good people i met with you. Will always have the memories i hink of them alot. Well my friend till we meet again will miss you.
So sorry for your loss, you are in our prayers
So sad to hear about the loss of Dick. He was loved by everyone who knew him. I loved listening to Dick and Hal in the good ole' days. Jeanne, I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved husband. You are in my prayers and thoughts. RIP Dick.
I drove to work for 20 years listening to Hal Jay and Mr Siegel (he would probably laugh at being called Mr.)But they always started my day with a smile on my face. Mr Siegel will be greatly missed My sincere condolences to the Siegel family.
We listened to Hal and Dick in the early 80's from Wichita Falls. Really missed when Dick left, but so happy to have found him again in El Dorado. He will be greatly missed.
As Sheriff of Schleicher County, I had the great privilege of meeting Dick as soon as he hired on with KLDE 104.9 in Eldorado. I quickly learned you could not get through a live interview without busting out laughing on air. Dick was a former Deputy Sheriff so there was an automatic camaraderie. Our hearts and prayers go out to the Siegel Family during the loss of this legend. Sheriff David & Lenette Doran.
I never hear a helo fly over without thinking of you. Thank you for the memories old friend, "Sister Elizabeth"
Thanks to the many years of laughter and tears. You are going to be greatly missed.
I worked with Dick at two different radio stations,what a dynamic force on and off the air. You will be missed, Dick. Prayers for you, Jeannie, God be with you during this time.
Always likeed Dick, listen to him and Hal for a long time. Condolences to all who love him
My father was a Pioneer! Audie Siegel
Daddy you have always been my hero. Growing up in the flying in the air with you,late nights at the KLIF station when I would run and grab your 8 tracks for you to play. The time you built my Barbie Dream house to have full lights And street lamps.You kept it hidden in your closet for at least two months while you were working on it every night when you would get home from the Station, not knowing that the daytime I would sneak in there and look at it in awe, it was all little girls dream. You have always been a amazing father and words cannot express how much I am missing you! It is comforting reading about how many others admire you as much, and I would like to thank everyone for taking the time for your words. We greatly appreciate them. Sincerely, Kristin Dawn Siegel
I love and miss you Daddy @-;--
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES--- On June 30, 2008 West Texas and Eldorado would never be the same. Not only had we got our first radio station KLDE earlier, we got our first live DJ. Little did we know that day how you would steal our hearts and transform our lives forever. Having the privilege of being on the air with you reporting the community news are memories I will cherish. You taught me so much about live radio and certainly kept me on my toes-- never knew what you were going to say next!! Every time we hear an Elvis song or watch an old DALLAS rerun we will think of you. I am so happy to have shared our travels with "Mustangs Across America" -finally found something that you hadn't done! We will always remember the parade and you riding in my T-bucket. We miss you forever, my friend!!! Cathy K. and Rennond, Eldorado, Texas
The fondest memory I have is the skit
"Willie Landem, Fishin Guide to the Stars",when Dick would ask Willie,"Hows Mom and Them?" If you run into Mom and Them in HEAVEN,tell them We Love Ya'll!
Thank you for a long road of memories and your heroism. You will be truly missed.
Dick you were one in a two million. I learned a lot from you about life and the radio business of the old days. I know I only knew you for 4 years but it felt like a lifetime. Via Con Dios my friend.....
Dick was a man of debth and attention to detail. He was very prepared for all he did. He was a source of inspiration and happiness for all that knew him. May He Rest In Peace.
We listened to Hal & Dick many years on WBAP..They always said something that made us laugh..So sorry to hear of Mr. Siegel's passing..Our deepest sympathy to the family..May God give you peace & comfort at this time..
Enjoyed you so much on the radio grew up listening to you on the radio. Loved your Saturday traveling show with Hal Jay and Don Day
my husband and spent years listening to Dick was a great man Butch and Judy Pennington Northlake Texas
I missed Dick when he left WBAP...
but listening to his morning show
on-line at KLDE was like listening
to WBAP music years ago.
GOD needed your sense of humor,so
HE called you HOME. R.I.P. Friend.
While working as an EMT in Fort Worth, my days always started with a laugh, they ended laughing too as you got me home in the evening. Here's the way I see heaven today; hell is burning, Mason is putting the fire out, Yawes is directing traffic around the fire, and Seig is flying over giving us a blow by blow description of the whole mess. Thanks for the laughs the giggles and tears caused by laughter. You've got your wings back now. Your are missed my friend. Jeanne you are in my prayers.
Before I met you
My family listened for many years to you on wbap
I'm blessed to have known you
Prayers for Jeanne
Siegel... it makes me smile to know that you got to spin your records right up until the end. The smiles of your listeners are shining on you right now, and they are well deserved. It is such an accomplishment to bring such laughter and joy to everyone who listened. I know how hard you worked and I know your are at peace now. Thanks for the memories.
You and Hal Jay made mornings the best time of the day for this night owl. You will be missed. RIP Mr. Siegel.
You were my reason for listening to WBAP every morning....You were the greatest...I loved you, Hal and Sam from Sales...I meet you several times at different place and you were always so friendly....The world has lost a wonderful man...May you RIP .
You were my mentor and my friend... I owe all of what I know about this business to you and Laura. I've been telling stories about our escapades all day today, and it made me smile and laugh a ton, but also brought a tear to my eye. You will be missed more than you know! You told me years ago that people would forget your name after you left the station... well, you were wrong, sir! They all remember, and they all love you... so do I!
Vaya con Dios, amigo! Thanks for everything!
been remebering all the rides we all took on our bikes to small towns to eat lunch. we used to tell the waitress it was your birthday and they would bring out a piece of cake with a candle on it. the expressions on your face will never be forgotten. going to miss you man.by the way, you forgot to take Buddy Holly's glasses with you. R.I.P. to one of the best people i know.
My husband and I spent many years listening to Hal Jay and Dick Siegel in the mornings. They always help to jump start our day. We felt as though they were some of our best friends. So saddened to hear of Mr. Siegel's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. RIP!
I have missed you for a long time and I am happy to learn you were doing what you loved. Metro-mess radio has not been the same for a long time now. RIP.
Rest in peace Dick. You deserve it. You and Hal made every day enjoyable for all of us.

You and Hal Jay always gave me my first smile or laugh of the day for many, many years. Thank you, and rest in peace.
God bless you Dick for the many years of service you provided to all of the travelers in the DFW area. I listened to you every morning and afternoon and between you and Hal Jay, my commute was more bearable. May you rest in peace sir. To quote what I used to hear you say at the end of the broadcast: "Good night Dick Siegel, wherever you are".
You will truely be missed. RIP
no one better than Dick Siegel, love to listen to Hal and Dick every morning for years and just hated to see him leave WBAP, still listening tho.Rest in Peace Dick Siegel, you will be missed.
I am so glad I was able to visit with Sieg a few months ago. I have family in Eldorado and learned he was a DJ there in town.I went to visit him at the station. We talked for a couple of hours about the fun we used to have when we worked together at Billy Bobs.Thanks for all of the great memories my friend and my heart goes out to your family.
Mr. Siegel was without a doubt one of the best. We will miss you.

Jay and Dick made my drive to and from work enjoyable. Dick was so funny. So sad to hear about his death.
Rest in peace. You are part of some great memories of when WBAP was a great country music station.
I went to work for WBAP in 1982 cooking Bar-B-Q at the station every wednesday and making all the remote broadcast. The first time I flew with Dick he said "I'm going to make you a star" and he did. Rest in peace Dick. Jim Slater
I remember hosting Dick and Hal in the Baylor Homecoming Parade when they were together at WBAP. I was their driver in a convertible and was the recipient of 2 hours of non-stop jokes and one-liners. These two guys were hilarious, even without a helicopter! John Fletcher, Arlington, TX
We will miss our dear friend. He was one of a kind and we loved him dearly.
Many wonderful memories of good times spent with Dick. Our love goes to you Jeannie.
Will always look up for you
It was a pleasure to meet Dick when he came to KLDE and Eldorado. I listened to him and Hal for many years while working in the Dallas area. May you be comforted in the days to come by the strength of God.
Dick was very special to me i have known him since his days at KLIF and i am sitting hear in tears and saddened by this. My feelings run deep for this man and he will always have a special place in my heart. Love you Siegel!
