Myron Anderson, the charismatic host of KTSU’s ‘Listening Back’ since 1981, died Thursday, February 7.  He was 62.

His family said he died after a brief illness.

Every Friday, KTSU listeners tuned in to Myron’s classic R&B mixes featuring the Commodores, Johnny Taylor, Bobby Blue Band, Smokey Robinson, Isley Brothers and much more.

“Myron was a Houston treasure who was passionate about R&B music and loved what he did everyday,” said Charles Hudson, Operations Manager for KTSU.

Some of his most memorable interviews were with Tyrone Davis, The Bar-Kays and The Temptations.

“He loved the Temptations and thought they were the most prolific music group in the world,” said TSU Journalism Professor Serbino Sandifer-Walker.

Myron loved giving back to the community and taught broadcast journalism courses at TSU’s College of Continuing Education.

He had an eclectic knowledge of rhythm and blues music.

Myron graduated from Texas Southern University’s School of Communication in 1987 with a BA degree in Telecommunications.

    I just learned of Myron’s passing earlier this evening. Myron & I go back many years together from Houston radio. Having been away from the Houston area a good while, Myron & I would visit by phone. We always had great & extended conversations. Whenever I spoke with Myron he always invited me to stay with he & Beth when I came back to visit. Sadly, I have never been back & I only wish that I could have SEEN Myron again. Like so many, I will miss Myron greatly. Yes he was a great friend to me also. God bless you Beth. My best to all, Johnny Goyen
