I worked with Malcolm at WTXL West Springfield in 1975, succeeding
him as Program Director when he went back to Long Island. I was so
used to him being Malcolm Davis, it was always odd hearing him as
"Austin" in Boston and Worcester. I forgot his real last name, as he
always used Malcolm Davis at WBAB Babylon NY too.
Malcolm was one of the nicest guys I ever worked with. He was smart
and knew what he was doing, yet had an easy-going personality that
you couldn't help but like.
I'm shocked he is gone. Does anyone know of funeral arrangements?
