He became known to hosts and listeners simply as “caller Bill.”
For years, Bill Kelty was a fixture on 970 WMAY, a regular caller whose distinctive voice and unique insights made him a radio celebrity in his own right.
Kelty died Sunday morning at Memorial Medical Center… he was 70 years old.
Private family services are planned, but memorial gifts can be made to the Animal Protective League’s Waggin’ Tails Animal Shelter on Taintor Road.
