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.
