Dennis Maurice "Crash" Collins was a key voice at KLOL through the 1970s and early '80s.
Beloved by fans for his free-form playlists and a few other eccentricities. He received the nickname "Crash" while working at KLOL from program director Jim Pruett. Collins had dabbled in drag racing in the early '60s, and Pruett thought "Crash" had a better ring to it than Dennis. Crash was a legendary figure in Houston radio who died in November 2011 of complications from prostate cancer. He was only 68.
