Radio Personalities We Lost in 2016

Much has been written about the high number of celebrities who passed away in 2016.  For my last entry of 2016 I would like to pay a brief tribute to three radio personalities who left us this year.

Dan Daniel

I wrote a tribute to him last June, I listened to him on WMCA, WHN, WNBC WYNY and WCBS-FM

Jim Lowe WNEW

Jim worked at WNEW 1130 AM and WNBC 660 AM but was also a recording artist best known for his hit Green Door.  Here is an obituary from the New York Times

Rich Conaty WFUV

His untimely passing at age 62 was announced last night.  He loved the music from the 1920s and 1930s and played it on WFUV Sunday nights.  Please see this tribute from the WFUV staff.

I'd like to thank reader Gary Fishbein for telling me that Dan Daniel and Jim Lowe also worked for WNBC 660 AM.
