Remembering Vic Monachelli

His cousin Vincent Matthews announced on Facebook that Vic Monachelli passed away.  I was aware that he was in the hospital for a few months and was not doing well.

Vic was the first radio enthuiast that I met online and in person. Back in the mid 1990s Prodigy was an online service with dial up access that offerred radio message boards.  Vic used to post about the WCBS-FM radio personalities.  You can see him above with Cousin Bruce Morrow. In July 1995 I visited Vic in Yonkers where he owned a pet supplies store. He regularly went to oldies concerts at the World Trade Center in the late 1990s.

Eventually Prodigy folded and Vic and I came over to AOL where we posted on various radio message boards.  Eventually we moved over to Facebook.

My condolences to his fiancee Darla and his family.  Oldies music has lost a good friend.
