In the 70s we did a newsletter called "Cultural Information Service" primarily written for progressive Christian churches (especially their youth directors). We covered rock and as we put the newsletter together, we listened continuously to WNEW. Pete and his colleagues not only introduced us to some great music, they provided the soundtrack for our work. We will always remember him and remain to this day grateful. Here's a tribute we wrote for our blog: http://www.spiritualityandpractice.com/links/index.php?id=22818

Wow - I am still in shock. I met Pete for the first time at WFUV on air in 2010. I would ratehr spend my time talking with Pete about music than any other rock and roll personality. The Best! Never to be duplicated.

My deepest sympathies to the Fornatale family. Another great voice stilled. Thank you for sharing this great man with us for so many years.

Such a gracious and interesting person who educated me in the wonderous world of great music. I had the great opportunity to meet Pete recently... What a marvelous person who will be missed! I guess Levon needed someone to discuss his musical life with and since Pete is the best interviewer, it had to be. Rest in Peace.

I love Mr. Fornatale. All the DJ's on WNEW. There has never been a station that was so wonderful at introducing new talent and having such knowledge of the current trends in music. Mr. Fornatale help educate me and I am grateful. May he rest in peace with rock n roll playing forever.

I put out this thank you to Pete, to carry the message to his soul. Your Sunday mornings and eventual Saturday evening weren't supposed to ever end. We're all so lucky you were part of our souls in bringing us such beautiful perspectives of such interesting and also beautiful songs and artists. I, like so many others must feel, have lost the best friend that I never met face to face, but soul to soul.

Been a listener / fan for almost 40 years! Alternative Rock/Folk will miss him dearly.

Although I did not know about this man until his passing, if it hadn't been for Mr. Fornatale's influence on radio media, I might not have ever discovered Poco and their fabulous 2nd album, "Poco" back in 1971. Thank you for that, Mr. Fornatale. It's still on my "Only 10 Albums on a Desert Album" list at age 56. My sincere condolences to his family.
