Ed Bradley was, indeed, a great
champion for Jazz.  I had the
good fortune of calling on him
in the mid-60s when he was doing
his nightly program on WDAS in
Philadelphia.  There were three
artists that he played on every
program - Diz, Prez, and The
King Cole Trio.  By the way,
playing jazz on WHAT directly
opposite Bradley, was Joel Dorn
who always managed to edge-out
Bradley in the ratings battle.  They
remained good friends through the
years

This wonderful man, extraordinary
journalist, and great friend of Jazz
will be sorely missed.
