Former 'Phil and Brent' morning show host Phil Stone dies

Linkages

Phil Stone, the longtime host of the Phil and Brent Show on KMOD-FM 97.5, has died, the station confirmed Wednesday.

The show hosted by Stone and Brent Douglas ended its nearly 27-year run on Oct. 12 without explanation.

Program Director Don Cristi posted a statement to the station’s website Wednesday, saying: “I was informed just minutes ago that Phil Stone has passed away. Brent confirmed the news to me and I have few other details.”

Cristi told the Tulsa World later Wednesday evening that “this is a huge loss.”

“It is literally like losing a member of your family,” Cristi said. “He had to be the greatest radio personality in this market.”

Stone's co-host, Brent Douglas, gained notoriety as the voice of “Roy D. Mercer,” a character created in 1993, who performed prank calls on unsuspecting listeners. The character’s popularity resulted in the release of 17 live albums beginning in 1997.

Prior to Stone's departure from KMOD, Stone tweeted: “Thanks for the interest … but we’ve decided not to do any media interviews. Gonna just sing Happy Trails and slither away.”

The cause of Stone’s death has not been announced.

Just to be clear, Brent Douglas of "Phil & Brent" was the actual Roy D. Mercer and he is still very much alive. Phil will be sorely missed.

Thanks for the laughs sir, I was introduced to Roy D. Mercer back in 95' and listened to all his cds on a trip I always had tears in my eyes.



RIP

Sorry to rain on your tribute, but they are nothing more than unoriginal plagiarists.

What morbid pleasure do you derive from trying to defame a dead guy? He was funny, I don't care where he got the material.....

Members of GD can be real dickheads, and I'm looking at you rightist.

Phil Stone was a legend and will be missed.  

RIP Phil.
