RIP Milt Rosenberg

Milt was a legend because of his many many years at WGN Radio. Robert Feder has the details about his passing.

I met Milt about a half dozen times over the years and found him to be a gentleman. He had been a student of John Landecker's father Werner (a sociologist at University of Michigan) and we talked about that. I also tried to talk Milt into doing an interview with me about his career, and he finally agreed after repeated badgering. On the eve of the interview he called me up and said: "I can't do it. It just wouldn't be right. It's not about me, it's about the work."

When I asked him if we could do an interview about the work, he laughed and said, "Hopefully it speaks for itself."

You know what? It did.

RIP Milt.
