Bill’s Radio Show Tribute to DJ Tawn Mastrey

Posted on Oct.29, 2007 under Bill Ward

Bill did a half-hour tribute to veteran KNAC DJ Tawn Mastrey during his monthly “Rock 50” radio show on Saturday, October 27. He spoke about how Tawn was so helpful in promoting his first solo effort outside of SABBATH — “Ward One” — and how important a figure she was to all of the metal community.

You can listen to that segment of yesterday’s show at this location.

Tawn Mastrey was a disc jockey, music video producer and one of rock radio’s top media personalities. She hosted a daily show on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Hair Nation Channel 23 and was also heard nationally on Westwood One Entertainment’s “Absolutely Live High Voltage”. Mastery also hosted, wrote, produced and syndicated her own radio specials, “RockZone” and “Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Happy Hour”, through Mastrey Productions, Inc. She did voice-overs, has owned her own video production company, Ladies In Production Services, and has written a cookbook, “Eat This”.

Tawn Mastrey died October 2, 2007 in Minneapolis at the age of 53. She had been suffering from the effects of hepatitis C which she contracted as a child.
