Pat A. Riley, an Avid Listener of Cousin Brucie, Has Passed Away


Back in the day one had to live near NYC to hear Cousin Brucie on WABC radio.  I guess there were some dxers that could pull in the station, but reception could be spotty.  When Cousin Brucie returned to WABC in September 2020 he could be heard on the internet worldwide.  One of his most avid listeners was Pat A. Riley from Texas seen above with the Cuz.  He actually drove to New Jersey from Texas to meet him.  He phoned Cousin Bruce quite often.

His sister announced today on Facebook that Pat passed away.  It is a shame that my last two journal entries announced passings.  Last December, Pat asked me to send him a file of his recent conversation with the Cuz.  As a big Buddy Holly fan he requested Rave On.

My condolences to his family and friends.
