 we'll miss you, al

a co-worker of mine died yesterday. i spent most of the day in shock. all of us did. al had been with the station for more than a quarter-century. his program was beloved by people all over the world. to say he will be missed is a gross understatement.

i built a memorial page to him on the station's website. this is my job, but it's actually a privilege -- i've had the honor of reading hundreds of loving comments from his friends and listeners, and posting them online. these comments are making me feel good. he made such a huge impact on so many people's lives... his enthusiasm, dedication and his voice. that voice, i'll never forget.

the raleigh paper wrote an article on him today. memorial services are monday.

Thanks for the link to the website.

I was shocked to hear about Al's death, via radio.

You did a really nice job on the memorial page. I'm sure his family appreciated it. I'm sorry for your loss, I'm thinkig of you!
