Stations Mourn Roosevelt Dean

April 10, 2009 by

SYRACUSE -- When local blues musician Roosevelt Dean died from cancer last week at 65, at least two local radio stations made a marked effort to observe the passing of a talented legend.

According to an article in this week's Syracuse New Times, word of Dean's death interrupted a pledge drive on WAER.  Other tributes followed there, as well as on Power 106.9 (WPHR), where Dr. Rick Wright renamed part of his Sunday afternoon show to honor Dean.
