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.
