Please forward my appreciation to Randy Stine for writing such an excellent, well-researched article ("Buterbaugh Legendary in Upper Midwest," Nov. 29).

I worked with Ed Buterbaugh at CKLW for approximately 10 years. Mr. Stine nailed Ed's life story. I know many of the people Mr. Stine interviewed and everything written rings true. I have forwarded a link to this story to my former CKLW co-workers.

The only thing that I can add is to relate the ironic fact that he ended his audio career as he began it, working in a church. Approximately a year and a half before his passing, he revamped the antiquated sound system of his place of worship, The Harrow United Church. Ed provided his time, talent and own resources to upgrade the PA system.

The Rev. David Steadman related a warm, funny and personal eulogy.

A Misleading Story Presentation

I take strong exception to the Randy Stine front-page article in the March 11 issue that insinuated that the listing of "off-air stations" is caused by the current downturn in the economy or that bankers are causing this to happen.

Steeplecasting

What a delight to read Robert R. Kegerreis' first-person account of his teenage introduction to broadcasting. His story took me back to my own adolescent misadventures of steeple-related shenanigans at my church.
