Bill Watson, a popular Inland radio disc jockey who was instrumental in bringing the Rolling Stones to San Bernardino for their first concert in the United States, died Tuesday, May 15, in San Diego. He was 88.

Watson helped propel San Bernardino-based KMEN into the top radio station in the region in the 1960s.
