Not sure what to say?

My big brother was an amazing person his entire life. I was well blessed to have never known my life without Phil in it. He motivated people even as a young boy -- it's in his DNA. His smile would light up a room -- that big smile of his would win anyone over. Not many big brothers could convince a 10 year old little sister that it would be a bundle of fun to spit shine his combat boots, but those of you who knew Phil well, can easily see how it would be an honor as his little sister to do...

I cannot begin to evaluate the effect Phil had on my career. I was so lucky to have him as the first G.M. I ever worked for. Phil could teach you tons of stuff just by being around him, and always the sense of humor.
Thank you Phil

I was very fortunate to have worked with Phil for 8 yearsat WRVQ. He showed me that work can be fun and we were not employees but we became part of his family. I always remember him saying "I cant believe I get paid for doing something I love" and I agreed with him. I condisered those years working with him were to have been the best!
Phil was one of a kind and he will be missed!!
All my love for the family.
Mi sentido pesame!

Charo, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I did not know Phil personally. His sister, Marylin, is my sister-in-law, and a jewel. I know from reading about Phil that his family will miss him tremendously but will be comforted by the knowledge that he is now in Heaven with Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Sincere condolences to his family.

I first met Phil in 1979, when I was selling for Q-107/Washington, with Richmond as one of my territories. Since our stations had a similar format, I figured there was no harm in getting to know the guy who ran one of the best CHR stations in the country! I always stopped in to see Phil when I was in town. Phil changed my life when he recommended me to Radio & Records, where ended up working for 20 years. Ana worked with me at R&R in DC for a bit. We stayed in touch over all...

Mrs. Goldman and family, I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Goldman. He was a man who certainly loved life and his family. I hope you find peace in your many wonderful memories.

Mr. Goldman was simply the type of man that we all strive to be. He was a family man with character and integrity; he will be sorely missed by the community. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Goldman family.

Phil Goldman made an impact everywhere he went. He will never be forgotten. He was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew him. The Richmond community will truly be less with his passing. I had the privilege of knowing him first as a competitor, later as advertiser on his station and of course as a friend. Our agency lunches with Phil (at Omar's…where else, back in the day) were epic, to say the least. After all these years, I will remember Phil best as the quintessential family man....
