Norm Pellegrini

Another voice from my life is gone. And what a voice it was.

Norman Pellegrini was program director until 1996, and an on-air voice until his death last week, on Chicago's only remaining classical music station, WFMT. He was affiliated with the station for my entire life, plus a few years.

John von Rhein's obit in the Tribune can be found here. Lynn Becker has a fitting tribute to him here to which I have added a comment.

Finally, here is WFMT's tribute.

A great loss.
