Austin radio station KDRP is mourning the loss of one of their pioneering DJ's Larry Monroe.
In a statement released to FOX 7, station founder Daryl O'Neal says Monroe was a legend plain and simple.
Monroe was rushed to the hospital this morning suffering from respiratory complications and died shortly after arriving.
KDRP staff tells FOX 7 that Monroe will be buried in Hartford City, Indiana. A memorial is planned here in Austin but a date has not been set.
