Rest In Peace, Superjock

Legendary “Superjock” Larry Lujack, a Radio Hall of Famer and one of broadcasting’s all-time greats, has died of cancer at 73.

I got the news from lifelong Chicago media reporter Robert Feder.  "He had been battling esophageal cancer for the last year and was in hospice care in Santa Fe, New Mexico, when he died Wednesday."

Someone at Wikipedia knows how significant his life was to many voices you hear on radio and TV today and they already have his bio updated with the news and his storied career.

There are many, many brilliant Lujack quotes that will live on in the content of the personalities he inspired and motivated with his bigger than life, always entertaining, never boring, totally unique character:
"Advice for buying a used car: Before you even test drive it, turn the radio on. If all the buttons are set to rock stations, it's gonna need a new transmission."

“What do you say to a kid who wants to be a disc jockey when he grows up?  You can’t do both.”
