I met Al over 40 years ago when I was a kid obsessed with radio. I used to listen to his “Saturday night thing” on WGBB. I would have my Dad take me to his WGBB fire truck remotes. I always looked up to Al and was so proud to call him my friend. He touched so many lives. He was an amazing person and dear friend. He will be sorely missed.
I graduated 1959 when Alan was a sophomore at AMHS. I remember him though the Amityville FD of which I was a member 1958-1962. His mom taught me music.
