I miss hearing his voice so much. As a young wife, mother, homeowner his words of wisdom guided me through a many rough days. My rides to work where so peaceful and comforting. Now that I am a mature wife, mother, and buisness owner I cant help but say I owe part of that to him. Although I didnt meet him personally I feel like I knew him well…..and I am grateful for the show.
Bro.Joe, as i called him, is and still the best radio person in the world! When my grandfather came out of the hospital from a massive heartache,Bro.Joe, put together a benefit concert for my grandfather-Pastor C.C. Robertson and we had a standing room only concert at the Bexar Street Church. The benefit guests consisted of great artists from far and near. Names- The late James Moore, Carnell Murrell and NuWork, and many others. So, Bro.Joe, I do not no, But I do no this, and that is, God must have needed your voice on his heavenly radio station.

I remember listening to his voice on Heaven 97 as a child on up to my young adult life…. I never met him but I could tell through the spirit in which he would broadcast, he was a God fearing man who loved the Lord and His people.

Bro. Joe loved what he did, and he loved the Heaven 97 community. I know you miss him; the Dallas community misses him.

Joe was a real help to me a whole-lot of times.He always had the right answers for me, like the time i got kicked out of school, and did not know what to do. Joe told me to go a congressmen to handle the problem. The school was closed for loan fraud.I hope there will always be a Joe Bagby Day
