Yes, Hilly Rose was the first to fill in for Art and he was (and is) great.

Hilly is in my thoughts and prayers. :)

I have always liked him. I believe he is the most truly knowledgeable broadcaster in the paranormal field.

It is also sad to hear that Fate is having financial problems. I hope it survives. I have been reading it for over 35 years. It is a great magazine.

I haven't subscribed in the past few years, maybe it's time to do that again, I have every copy of Fate that I received, just got an email from them and they are selling individual older copies for $30.00 each, I have most of those, not that they are for sale.

I always very much enjoyed Hilly Rose when he filled in for Art. I am saddened to hear that he is having so many problems of late. Sending out good thoughts for Hilly.

Talk Radio Pioneer Hilly Rose Has Died

(December 28, 2017) Hilly Rose, a true pioneer in Talk Radio, died yesterday of natural causes, at the age of 91.

Before moving to Los Angeles, Hilly was on the air in San Francisco for a number of years, hosting highly-rated talk shows on KGO, KCBS and KNEW, as well as a television talk show on KTVU. He spent close to two decades at KABC, KFI, and KMPC. Hilly was best known for his talk show "Open Phone Forum" on KFI, before satellites made national talk shows feasible. The KFI signal stretching across the country drew calls from all 48 states. When Art Bell “mysteriously disappeared” in 1998, Hilly took over the Coast-to-Coast program on 482 stations including KABC. He later alternated nights with Art Bell until January 2000. He also filled in numerous times for Larry King on the national Mutual Radio Network.
Hilly had one of the very first shows on the Sirius Radio Network. The show focused on examining the paranormal. Hilly was a child actor, performed in network radio soap operas in Chicago, (Ma Perkins and First Nighter) and has made industrial films and commercials since 1961. In 1979 he joined KHJ/Channel 9 News to review restaurants. "I appeared live on tv and radio simultaneously through the wonders of tape."

In the late 1970s, Hilly demonstrated the power of talk radio advocacy. "There was a lot of talk about tax relief for property owners and Proposition 13 was born as the Jarvis-Gann Initiative. The problem was they weren't talking to each other and it looked like it might fail." Hilly surreptitiously brought them together along with L.A. County Tax Assessor Phil Watson. "I locked the studio doors while they worked out their differences on-air!" The result was a huge vote for Prop 13. Hilly was also an author, writing on book on the talk radio profession entitled But That’s Not What I Called About.

In 1984, Hilly retired from radio and purchased a large housewares store in Santa Cruz. A year later he started a series of weekend radio shows on KGO-San Francisco that ran until 1992. In 2016, Hilly was inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame as a “Pioneer/Living Legend”. Hilly Rose is survived by his wife Mary Shepper Rose and has children Patricia, Roger and Adam. His oldest son was Judd Rose, ABC network news reporter. He is the grandfather of six. Rose was a resident of San Francisco.
