God bless you, Danny Stiles

A long-time presence on the New York City and New Jersey airwaves has died.

Danny Stiles had a radio show like no other. Devoted to the popular music of days gone by, he would spin records of
smooth crooners and hot swingers, of jazz men and women, of even some doo-woppers and rockers, of the luminous greats and those whom time had passed by. And always tenderly and lovingly for his audience, his fans, and the musicians who continued to give so much pleasure, at 78 and 33 and 45 revolutions per minute.

We'll miss you, Danny boy, and will always picture you in your Art Deco penthouse studio, high atop a New York City skyscraper.
