From All Access:

Condolences to the family and friends of RICHARD IRWIN, best remembered as the founder of the online aircheck museum REELRADIO -- but also a former PD/On-Air at KAFY/BAKERSFIELD and KROY/SACRAMENTO. IRWIN passed away WEDNESDAY, JUNE 6th in SACRAMENTO. He was 67.

iHEARTMEDIA News-Talk KFBK-A-F/SACRAMENTO News Dir. MIKE HAGERTY shared, "RICHARD had shut REELRADIO down at the end of APRIL, anticipating a surgery and rehab he hoped would restore his ability to walk and reduce or eliminate the near-constant pain he’d endured since an accident in his home two years ago. But a series of healthcare snafus kept the surgery from ever happening. No word on services."

My condolences. He was passionate about preserving the history of classic Top 40 radio. His site, and the WABC tribute page, were my introduction to the world of online airchecks some two decades ago.
