DEAR FRIENDS, FAMILY, COLLEAGUES AND MINISTRY PARTNERS,


DAN PIKE

60 YEAR BROADCAST VETERAN

OWNER OF KHCS (91.7 FM) - JOY 92 - PALM SPRINGS


WENT TO BE WITH JESUS NOVEMBER 6, 2017

HE WAS 78 YEARS YOUNG!



DAN LOVED JESUS, HIS FAMILY, HIS LIFE AS A BROADCASTER - BRINGING HOPE AND JESUS TO MILLIONS THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER - WHICH BEGAN AT AGE 17 - WHEN HE OPERATED, THEN KGER, 1390 AM FROM 1957 - 1974 - THE ONLY CHRISTIAN STATION AT THAT TIME IN LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA (OR SO WAS TOLD),


AND FOR THE LAST 24 YEARS - KHCS - WHICH HE FOUNDED AND STARTED ON JANUARY 16, 1993  

 REACHING THE ENTIRE COACHELLA VALLEY AND BEYOND FROM HIS BROADCAST FACILITY IN PALM SPRINGS.



DAN WAS ALSO AN ORDAINED BAPTIST MINISTER AND EDUCATOR - HAVING OPERATED EIGHT (8) CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS (KHCS) - ALONG WITH HIS MOTHER, WHEN HIS FATHER PASSED AWAY - AND THEN EVENTUALLY SOLD. 


HE WAS AN AVIATOR,  A SMALL BOAT CAPTAIN AND  HE RAN HIS BROADCAST STUDIO - AS TIGHT AS THE BOAT HE WOULD SAIL TO CATALINA.  


  HE PRODUCED AND EDITED PROGRAMMING WITH THE SAME FERVOR HE PRODUCED RECORDS  (BACK IN THE DAY), WITH EXCELLENCE, QUALITY AND A NO-NONSENSE APPROACH ...UP EARLY, NO TIME TO WASTE - LET'S GET IT DONE - AND HE DID!  YOU COULD ALWAYS DEPEND ON DAN - HE KEPT HIS WORD!


NEVER WANTING TO SHARE HIS OWN STORY .... DAN WAS A MAN OF FEW WORDS ... AND ONLY WHEN NEEDED.  

HE PREFERRED TO BE BEHIND THE MIC - RATHER THAN IN FRONT OF IT - AND HIS GREAT HOPE WAS THAT JESUS WOULD BE HIS REWARD - AND THAT HE WOULD BE FOUND FAITHFUL - PREFERRING THE APPROVAL OF GOD, RATHER THAN MAN.



HE WILL BE GREATLY MISSED AND WAS LOVED BY ALL WHO KNEW HIM, 


AND ESPECIALLY THIS BROADCASTER,
