Tangentially Steely Dan: Legendary Jazz DJ Ed Beach Dies

Quote from the article:
Donald Fagen of Steely Dan, in an interview with New York magazine said that, "Ed Beach on WRVR would do this very scholarly afternoon show, and I'd listen to that when I came home from school." Fagen cited Beach, as well as Mort Fega and Jean Shepherd, as a major influence on his Nightfly character from the successful album of that same name.
