MAC HUDSON ROACH
Radio morning-show personality Mac Hudson of KFMB-AM's "Hudson and
Bauer" show signed off the air for the last time at 9 a.m. Friday.
Mr. Hudson said he did not feel well, went home to take a nap and died
in his sleep. He was 58.
Born in Texas with the name Hudson "Mac" Roach, he served as Joe Bauer's
sly straight man for nearly 23 years, making "Hudson and Bauer" the longest-running
radio show in San Diego. Bauer nicknamed his partner "Huddo."
"We're very much like ordinary people, with families and kids and jobs
and all the ups and downs of everyday life," said Mr. Hudson in a 1995
interview with The San Diego Union-Tribune. "So what's wrong
with that?" Mr. Hudson had left the station May 30 after a
series of health problems, some of which he attributed to alcohol and drug
In October 1994, he missed several months as co-host of the show because
of similar ailments. At that point, his secret battle with
addiction became public.
"Hudson entertained San Diegans for two decades, almost 23 years,"
Sniff said Friday night. "He had a great ability not to take
himself too seriously and I think listeners really bonded with that.
He was a very comfortable person to be with and that really came through
on the radio." Bauer, 53, said their co-hosting partnership
was just like a marriage. "We went through the ups and downs
like any marriage does," he said. "We would never, never upset
each other for the sake of that show. The show was our child
and we protected that child." Bauer said they had one important
rule to live by. If one wanted to say something critical to
the other, he had to do it the same day, before leaving the station, or
had to forget it. Mr. Hudson's wife, Paula, said he did not
let anyone get away with anything. "He kept the show honest.
He kept everybody honest," said Paula Roach. Poking fun at
life's foibles and obstacles was what "he was all about," Roach said.
Bauer and Mr. Hudson also were very much in demand to host community
annual golf tournament fund-raiser, which benefited the Nice Guys philanthropic
group and children's mental health programs. Before coming
to San Diego, both men were working on shows at different radio stations
in Houston. Bauer says Mr. Hudson's vocabulary was uncanny,
which made for some good radio quizzes. "He was the brightest
guy I ever met in my life," Bauer said. "He read three or four
books a week. Fiction, history, it didn't matter, whatever
he would grab. He was a voracious reader. "I was
the student, but he was the scholar." KFMB radio personality Ted Leitner
said Mr. Hudson possessed some of the quickest and brightest wit in the
"I honestly don't think in any (radio) market there was anyone better,"
Leitner said. "I always connected with Mac. He
was quick as hell on the air and flat-out funny. Not only was
he funny, he was a great audience, and people overlook that in my business.
I don't know, we probably had a similar sense of humor-- sarcastic.
"Mac made you better. He had an infectious laugh.
We always laughed. We were like that on the air, in the hall
or at a social event. We rarely had a discussion where there
wasn't laughter. You can't fake that. I'll miss
him professionally and even more personally." In a statement,
Gov. Pete Wilson said he was deeply saddened to learn of Mr. Hudson's death.
"For nearly 23 years, he and Joe Bauer brought levity and laughter to San
Diego's airwaves," the governor and former mayor of San Diego said in the
statement. "Mac was a good friend and a great supporter and
he'll be missed by many." In a 1994 interview with the Union-Tribune,
Mr. Hudson said, "I've had tragedies to overcome --
like everyone does. But I've had some great times, seen some
wonderful places and learned some great things. And that's
part of what I bring to the show, I hope."
Mr. Hudson is survived by his wife, Paula; eight children, Kevin of
Texas, Baxter of Washington, Anna of Vermont, Vaughn of Washington, and
Alice, Jessie, Rachel and Paula, all of San Diego; his mother, Margaret
Mildred LEFKOWITZ; and seven grandchildren.
A public memorial service will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the
Cathedral of St. Paul, 3655 Fifth Ave.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial donations be
made to the Y.E.S. Program, 1816 Logan Ave., San Diego 92113.
