LARRY WACHTEL, a stock market analyst who gave financial advice to CBS RADIO News WINS-A/NEW YORK radio listeners for more than 30 years, died SUNDAY at the age of 77. The YONKERS resident died unexpectedly of a heart ailment at WESTCHESTER Medical Center, family spokeswoman TAMI LUHBY said.
WACHTEL gave daily stock market commentary on 1010 WINS from 1972 to 2005. Listeners recognized the native NEW YORKER by his heavy BROOKLYN accent and his trademark signoff of "gather those rosebuds."
WACHTEL is survived by his wife of 47 years, a son and two grandchildren.
