"Life is short, laugh hard."

R. Edward Lopez: 1953-2005
Lopez - the longest running newsman in rock radio. He outlasted 14 different morning shows in his 27 year career.

The battlements of the Hearst Broadcast Castle won't be the same without him.

R. Edward Lopez, passed away, yesterday, Sunday May 22 2005 after succumbing to lung cancer.

1/3 of 98 Rock's KML (Kirk, Mark and Lopez) morning rock radio, Lopez kept us laughing while intelligently informing us of the latest news at the same time.

Rock radio just won't be the same and neither will the morning commute...

Head on over to
98 Rock Online
for a tribute in word and image to Lopez
