ALL ACCESS is saddened to report the passing of CLEAR CHANNEL Urban WWPR (POWER 105.1)/NEW YORK weekend DJ CARL BLAZE (12/23), who was shot 13 times (NET NEWS 12/8) and then robbed. No word on suspects, so far, in this senseless killing.
POWER 105.1's, J WRIGHT, said, "POWER 105.1 FM lost a close friend SATURDAY. CARL BLAZE died as a result of gunshot wounds he received on Dec 7th. He was only 30 years old. He is survived by his wife, his 1 and 7 year old children & those that love him here at POWER 105.1.
:I can't say enough about how genuine and cool CARL was. Needless to say, he was one of NYC's most talented DJ's and we have truly lost one of the best on what is supposed to be a joyous holiday season."
WRIGHT is organizing a funraiser for CARL's family tonight (12/26) at COPACABANA, 560 W 34th St. & 11th Ave., from 7p on. The event will be hosted by POWER 105.1 afternoon personality ED LOVER. RSVP: email@example.com.
