Radio Legend Larry Lujack Dies at 73
Seeing on Facebook tonight that radio legend Larry Lujack has died. Many in Grand Rapids and West Michigan grew up or remember listening to Larry on WLS.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Larry had been in hospice for three days and died of esophageal cancer. Larry and his wife moved to New Mexico after his retirement in 1987 and his body will be donated to the New Mexico Medical Center for research.
Upon hearing this news, I remembered having audio of Larry’s last day on 89/WLS that was included on a CD they gave out one year at a radio conference called The Conclave. Hear that audio below.
