His broadcasting career spanned almost seven decades with the signature sounds of the big band era and early rock-n-roll as his forte. Now Bill Miller has passed away.

Miller was the voice of "Wax Works" and its successor, "The Bill Miller Show," both heard on KVOE's airwaves for decades, with Wax Works briefly originating out of space at 12th and Cottonwood in Emporia after station owner Steve Sauder purchased the rights to the program. He says Miller's knowledge and folksy on-air demeanor -- along with the music he played -- was a winning combination.

A Kansas Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame inductee in 1998, Miller's career also took him to small cities like Coffeyville; Parsons; Lawton, Oklahoma: and Yankton, South Dakota; as well as big cities like Wichita; Oklahoma City; and Tulsa.

Funeral arrangements are pending through Penwell-Gabel of Olathe.
