Former WNYC host and world-class curmudgeon Steve Post died Sunday, August 3, at age 70. His program "Morning Music” ran for two decades. He left the station in 2001, but returned to host a weekly program called “The No Show.” Post was known for his pointed asides on everything from politics to station management. Leonard spoke with Steve Post on the Leonard Lopate Show in 2008 and in 1995.

We were awakened each day for 20years;by Steve's wit and his music. He will be sorely missed.

70? Why so young?

Since 9/11 and the acquisition of WQXR, WNYC has been a very different station. Not all of it for the better. I miss having competing options for classical listening - though with the advent of the Internet, there are choices galore.

Anyway....I remember Steve playing (I think) the Toy Symphony one morning and abruptly taking the needle out of the groove when the toy bird whistle started playing. He just wasn't ready...and said so. Unforgettable.

You are missed, Steve. Thanks for the memories.
