    I remember him from his bumpers, something like "Hi I'm Pete Fornatale, stay turned to KROCK after Howard for America's best classic rock." RIP bumper guy.

    I sorta I met him once. He was one of my favorite DJs from WNEW which was the primo classic rock station in NY when there was real music.

    I missed him in his legendary prime but used to listen to his late Saturday night oldies show on WFUV.

    He never dishonored himself by marrying a stupid escort whore did he?

    All I remember is Fred doing a great nasal impersonation of him. I don't think I ever heard his show. RIP.

    Fred's impression was good, but I think it's Billy West doing the voice in that clip.
