As a radio personality with KDKS (102.1) he was well-known for his sayings including “Well Come On!” and “Love Ya Be the Pound.” As a DJ he had the most consistently high ratings in the Ark-La-Tex, and was supported by a large fan base. “Cat Daddy” was said to have made Old School fresh and acceptable.
His pastor, Rev. Timothy Hunter of Tabernacle Baptist Church, said, “He was just that kind of guy. He loved his wife Bridgett, and his children dearly, but he was hard not to love. He was the kindest, most caring and accommodating person you ever could meet, and everybody that knew him knew that he had an overwhelming affinity for his Pastor and his church family too.” Some of Spurs’ business ventures included Cat Daddy's Lounge, Club Virgo, and Venue Progressive Men's Club where he hosted "ole school and blues". He also owned “Cat Daddy’s Used Cars.”
Spurs bought Jessie's Cafe' from his aunt, Jessie Dell Foster Ray, and renamed it Cat Daddy’s Old School Café. He was also owner of Cat Daddy’s Bail Bonds. Popular disc jockey Clarence “Cat Daddy” Spurs died suddenly April 14.
