Wow! Fantastic! Thanks so much for posting that. More talent than most of today's jocks put together. Wish we had someone like that now.

What was Frankie's album name? I would like to attempt to find/purchase it.

It's a sadness and a gladness to hear and now
to find out of Frankie's death.

I am eight years late, sad!

I am however glad that Frankie got his pins
in order and placed his life in The Matchless
Hands of Almighty God, so reported one website
that Mr. Crocker had become a "born-again"
Christian. If there is any truth in that,
God alone Knows and I am grateful to have
read such a report!

I will miss him. He's perhaps the originator
of "The Quiet Storm" radio format and now,
even stations owned by certain Afro-American
radio executives have begun to label their
late night programs the same name. How
un-original and lazy!

Glad I lived in the time of such a creative
man. He made the music industry for many of
the African Americans and Caribbean people
attractive.

May God continue to keep him until we all meet.
