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?
