I tuned in about 10 minutes after I got the news (via an e-mail alert  
from the New York Times).  It sounded like a well-produced pre- 
recorded obituary that ran until close to 2 AM.  At about 2, I heard  
Steve Leveille on with Dan Rea, who said he had been heading home but  
turned around when he heard the news.

WBUR was also running what sounded like a pre-recorded obituary.
