Ralph Snodsmith's passingMay 9 2010 at 2:14 PM
|THE WRKL Radio Tribute website |
It is with sadness that we report the passing of Ralph Snodsmith, host of WRKL's "Garden Hotline" on April 17th, 2010, at the age of 70.
The "Garden Hotline" started the year the station signed on, 1964. Ralph picked up the hosting chores the following year, and his run with the show on WRKL continued until the station's sale in 1999.
The show moved to the other commercial station in Rockland, WRCR, later that year, and Ralph remained with the program until about a year ago, when health issues required that he curtail some of his broadcast activities.
The "Garden Hotline" had aired Sunday mornings on New York's WOR radio for decades. Ralph did what turned out to be his final show for WOR on March 14th. The station's website is reporting that Ralph died as a result of complications from an accident suffered in March.
Ralph Snodsmith was a gentleman both on the air and off, and the WRKL family mourns the loss of this broadcasting great.
