Andrew Patner R.I.P.

1 post in this topic

He was only 50-something - died of an infection. Andrew was the classical music crit for the Chicago Sun-Times and did 2 weekly radio shows on the Chicago classical music station. He grew up 2 doors down the street from me, son of a locally famous liberal lawyer. Andrew campaigned for Independent Voters of IL candidates when he was a teenager, later wrote a biography of I.F. Stone which I haven't yet read. A super nice guy. He had me review a couple classical music concerts for the paper, a job for which I was utterly incompetent. Like his man Studs Terkel, Andrew had vast range of interests, especially in music, and he knew and appreciated Larry Kart's writing. I'm going to miss his enthusiasm and energy and kindness.
