I spoke to Len a few times as he reviewed my CD and he was quite a gentleman and his professionalism was outstanding.  A class act will be missed.

en sent me a note off the JPL once inquiring about my "Obsession" 
ecording...which was my first in 86. How he found out about that record I'll 
ever know because it was never distributed to the masses. It's been long out of 
rint now. I only have six left actually and Len asked me if I had a CD of the 
roject. I told him no...only LP. He asked me to send him the LP and he would 
ake a CD out of it for me. I did and now I have a CD of that project thanks to 
en. That was a very kind thing to do. Len was a good guy and LOVED this music. 
y condolences to his family. It will surely be odd not seeing his posts on the 
PL.

 Oh man, that's sad! And shocking...
 I've gotten so used to seeing his posts here on the
 JPL...what a loss.  My condolences to friends and fans as
 well.

 MONTREAL - Noted jazz broadcaster Len Dobbin died early
 Thursday morning 
 at the Royal Victoria Hospital after suffering a stroke. He
 was 74.
 
 Dobbin became ill last night sitting at his favourite seat
 at the bar of 
 Upstairs Jazz Bar & Grill, waiting for the evening show
 to begin, and an 
 ambulance was called.
 
 He was surrounded at the intensive care unit by his three
 daughters, 
 broadcaster/actor Dorothée Berryman, and singer Monique
 Fauteux, who 
 were among his closest friends over the past years.
 
 Dobbin referred to himself modestly as a friend of jazz,
 but he was 
 instrumental in promoting the music as he befriended the
 players and 
 chronicled major events in the jazz world as a broadcaster
 and journalist.
 
 His two-hour Dobbin's Den program on CKUT radio Sunday at
 11 a.m. was 
 must-listening for fans of the the music he loved ? bop and
 hard bop of 
 the late 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. He also wrote CD reviews
 for the 
 Montreal Mirror.
 
 Funeral arran
gements have yet to be made.
