Pete Fornatale..or as I called him: "Jonathan Schwartz Lite" since their voices and approach to music history resembled each other in my way of thinking. Such a soothing voice Pete possessed. Many a night I would listen to the "progressive" rock of the '70s on WNEW FM 102.7 night afer night listening to the "deep cuts" of albums he would play. I'll miss him as I have missed Scott Muni,the Night Bird and Rosco..wow..life is slipping by. RIP,Pete. You WILL be missed.

How this sweet, sincere, gifted man will be missed. His soothing voice made evrything more alive. His radio and PBS presence has been a constant in my life for over 35 years. So many thanks to him. My sympathy to his family.

I listened every day, in the afternoons (definitely) on Saturday. He was like an old friend. RIP.

My condolences to the Fornatale family... I grew up listening to Pete on WNEW in the 70's, and loved his shows. Pete will be greatly missed. What a huge loss.

Pete, You will forever be a part of our hearts, music and life as you were in our childhood, youth and adulthood! You were our "mixed bag" of only goodness, compassion and passion for music, musicians and will remain a part of all of our yesterdays, todays and tomorrows! We will miss you but will know you are with us when each musical note and song is played on the radio. With many tears,

Pete Fornatale was a part of my life since he first sat at a microphone at WNEW FM in the late 60's. I've been a fan and admirer ever since. His voice has been stilled now. But it will live on in the hearts and minds of millions forever. Rest in Peace, Pete Thanks for a great ride. Fordham has lost another great alumni.

Mixed Bag was a huge part of my life in the 80s. Pete exposed me to great folk and beyond music that I still pursue today. Pete had a voice and a delivery and knowledge that set the standard.

I am so very sad about the loss of Pete. My heart and prayers go out to the Fornatale family.

A very important part of my life for nearly 30 years has been taken away.

There are not enough words to describe how much his work and spirit has influenced and given comfort to me.

So very sorry.

My Deepest Sympathy.
