  Alas, I believe that lovable ol' Gene "Schools are open this morning ...
GEEEET UPPPPP!" Rousseau passed on in the late 70's - early 80's.  Roger still
hosts a Saturday French program on WNRI - but I haven't heard any other programs
he may be currently doing.  When Roger was on WWON (now WOON), he used to do
news and talk shows.
