I was more than a little surprised by the terse reply about the original post from a widely known and widely respected expert on the NY area broadcast business and the members of it's community.

No, there's nothing new in the WQXR obit for Sam, other than its existence. The New York Times didn't run one, even though it signed Sam's last paycheck. But the Jeff Spurgeon obit was posted on this board the same day as the memorial service was held in Brooklyn.

Many of us who knew Sam, who worked with him or for him or as competitors weren't able to attend. The post serves as a reminder.

Sam didn't have the large and ardent public following that some others on this board had. But public notoriety -- fame -- isn't the only measure of a life.

Sam was a prince among newscasters. So while there's nothing new in the Spurgeon piece, it's still worth reading and maybe printing out and saving.
