Condolences to the family and friends of SAGA Oldies WQQL/SPRINGFIELD, IL's ED "ROCK AND ROLL" PRITCHARD, who passed away after a heart attack last night.
PRITCHARD, 58, had been with the station for 19 years.
SAGA COMMUNICATIONS EVP STEVEN J GOLDSTEIN told ALL ACCESS, "ED was the consummate Oldies jock. Enthusiastic every day. He lived the music, had an encyclopedic knowledge of it ('that was the #2 song of 1968'), and above all, loved THE BEATLES."
