There has been another passing in the WMNF family...Robert C. Welle (pictured here, on the right) died Tuesday evening (10/2/12) due to cancer, which he had been battling for several years.

People may remember Rob as the great guy with a warm smile, and a big help at WMNF events. He often worked the will-call table, exchanged tickets for wristbands at the door, or sold merchandise for the bands. He was a good friend to 88.5FM, and we are all very sad to learn about his death. Rob had been struggling with health problems for several years - attending and volunteering at WMNF events was one of the bright spots in his life in his last months.

Further details could likely be accessed through Robbie's Facebook page - his brother seems to be keeping it active, for the time being. For those who have a Facebook page, this is the link: https://www.facebook.com/rottenrobbie?fref=ts

Rest in Peace, Rob. You will be missed.
