An obit in the Chicago Tribune notes the recent passing, at 89, of pioneering FM radio station owner George Collias. Mr. Collias founded and ran Century Broadcasting Corp., which, for many years owned Detroit's legendary WABX, as well as FM stations in Chicago, St. Louis, Denver, Dallas, Boston, LA, and San Francisco.
