Howie paying tribute to Jerry

Right now WRKO's Howie Carr is paying tribute to the
late Jerry Williams. He played a montage of great
Jerry moments, assembled by his producer Nancy "Sandy"
Shack (who had done the same job for the Dean); he
says he'll run more of Jerry's on-air
encounter with Ted Kennedy and they hope to talk to
Gene Burns later this afternoon.

Howie, who got his start via Jerry, praised him as the
greatest talk show host, a man who "was at the top of
his game in 1990, at the age of 67. That's
like someone winning the AL batting title at 45".
Howie said that thanks to Jerry, he's gone from
"Somerville to Wellesley", and it all started when
Jerry "started reading my columns on the radio".
