Gene Nelson. I can’t help remembering at Christmas time your reading of a Christmas parable. It has touch my heart to this day. Too, you were obviously accepted as a friend of John Madden. I would never miss a morning conversation you had with him. I remember his ‘Road to Success winds through the city dump’. ‘You need to know had badly you can feel to know how good you can feel!’ I thought he was talking about football preseason 2 a day work outs until I realized he was talking about life itself. Even though I have never met you I know you would would be a good friend. I enjoyed your show and miss it to this day. I’m now 74 and retired with my wife of 50 years in Colorado. Best to you and your wife. I looked for you once in the bar on Kauai. I’m glad you survived the hurricane! Gratefully, Jim and Sandi

Gene Nelson was the best. He helped me get up and go to a dismal job, in a great mood. Hearing of the passing of John Madden made me remember how much I loved their conversations, even though I was not a football fan. I’ve never forgotten Pusser the 40+lb cat snoring. I still laugh when i remember that. Thank you
Emperor Gene

I used to listen to Emperor Gene Nelson on KYA back in the mid-60’s. He was my favorite DJ by a mile. Back in those being a great DJ was a big deal. He made it so.

last i had heard gene and his wife were living in napa area.gene is 85 now and left radio and ksfo at age 58 for retirement in hawai.he returned to sf in 2007 for family reasons and lived along the embarcadero until moving to napa.i've heard he's a pretty private person fter leaving radio.i miss gene.morning rdio is not the sme.

Wondering whether Emperor Nelson of legendary KYA radio San Francisco is still alive today. Can't find any current information on him on the internet. Anybody have any info?
