WHAM in Rochester announced today that Harry Abraham passed away last
week. I don't know if anyone else had seen this:
Philadelphia, PA - Long time Rochester radio jazz host Harry Abraham
has died. Abraham hosted an overnight jazz program on 1180 WHAM for
many years. A website called Rochester Beat notes that "from 1969 to
1978 Harry Abraham played jazz, real jazz, from Midnight to 5AM every
night but Saturday. WHAM's nightime signal covered at least half of
the United States. The show was called "The Best of All Possible
Worlds". It seemed he could almost play anything on that show and did."
WHAM said the cause of death was cancer. He was 64.
