A legend in radio.
Rock radio pioneer Scott Muni dies at 74
Scott Muni, an authoritative voice on album-oriented rock for New York radio stations since the 1960s and a Point Pleasant resident, died yesterday. He was 74.
Earlier this year, Muni suffered a stroke, but the cause of his death was not yet known, said Josefa Paganuzzi, spokeswoman for Clear Channel, the corporate owner of the New York-based classic rock station WAXQ-FM. Muni joined the Q104.3 FM staff in 1998.
Muni spent more than 30 years at WNEW-FM in New York, beginning in 1967. He helped define the station as one of the country's first and best-known outlets for the album format, in contrast to Top 40 radio's emphasis on singles.
He will be missed. As Curtis and Kuby were discussing this morning on WABC radio, when Muni died we all got a little bit older.
