Play • 59 min

In this episode of The Flyovers, host Alan Wartes talks with Felix Belmont. Until his retirement from the airwaves at age 101 in November 2019, Belmont was one of the oldest—if not the oldest—working public radio DJs in America. In the 1970s he was instrumental in helping to found community station KVNF in Paonia, Colorado. His Big Band music show called Stop Time entertained listeners for decades. Felix is also a WWII veteran who shares his experience standing toe to toe with the Japanese army in the Aleutian Islands.
