Kansas City Radio Legend Mike Murphy Dies of Stroke

March 10, 2011

Murphy suffered a stroke at his Kansas City home around 3 p.m. Wednesday, and passed away a few hours later. For over 45 years, Murphy worked for many different stations in Kansas City. He retired from KCMO Talk Radio in 2004. He loved to talk about U.F.O's on his show. Murphy is well known in the city for bringing back the St. Patrick's Day parade which started as a stunt in 1973. It is now one of the largest St. Patrick Day parades in the country. In 2005, the parade established the annual “Mike Murphy –Honorary Irishman of the Year” award in his honor. Murphy’s other legacy is co-founding the downtown cattle drive.
