Frank O’Toole, R.I.P.

 

It’s been a tough year so far at WFMU. We are sad to announce another loss to the WFMU family: Last week, Frank O’Toole passed away. A long-time fixture at the station, Frank helped to make Freeform 91 what it is today. He was an encouraging presence and source of inspiration to new DJs over the years, and his own program never lost its freshness or sense of exploration. Even after health problems sidelined him for awhile, he soldiered on and continued to make great radio. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
