'With Heart And Voice' Host Richard Gladwell Dies At 88
October 19, 2009 at 3:58 AM (PT)
Condolences to family and friends of syndicated public radio "WITH HEART AND VOICE" choral and organ music show host RICHARD GLADWELL, who died THURSDAY (10/15) after a battle with brain cancer at 88. GLADWELL, who was based at noncommercial WXXI-F/ROCHESTER, NY, joined WXXI in 1974 and his show went into syndication in the 1980's. He was set to retire in 2010, with EASTMAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC's PETER DUBOIS taking over as host at that time; the show recently entered reruns as GLADWELL's illness prevented him from continuing.
WXXI ran a special tribute to GLADWELL this SUNDAY (10/18), hosted by DUBOIS and JEANNE FISHER.
