Tom Snyder Dies at Age 71

Tom Snyder's Tomorrow Show was a staple of late-night TV in the not-so-distant-past, but I recall Tom as a disk jockey in the 1950's at WRIT AM when he was doing an intro into harder news. Tom was a Marquette High/Marquette U grad like myself & his radio station was adjacent to the Marquette High Sophomore football team's practice field. I recall going to the station once in the late '50s to see Tom, but don't recall any success. Perhaps he wasn't in. At any rate, he sort of erased his DJ stint from his resume & RIP, Tom, for some good teen memories way back in the Day.
