Condolences and Tributes for Robert M O'Friel


Dr. Michael A. Clark posted a Condolence | November 30, 2005

I was shocked and saddened by the sudden and unexpected death of my good friend,Bob("Sparky") O'Friel.Bob was an inspiration to me and very supportive in many ways. He was, without a doubt, one of the most articulate and knowledegable authorities on the history of Bix Beiderbecke and Gennett Records.A wonderful and good friend, you will be missed.
Whenever I hear "Jazz Lives" I will think of you.

Mike Clark

I enjoyed listening to Bob's "Jazz Lives" for years. I'll mis Bob and think of him anytime I'm in a place"where there's ragtime."

One evening back in the 1970s, my dad came in from the garage, where he'd been listening to the car radio and said "Come out here, you've got to hear this." I went out and sat in the car with him and heard Bob O'Friel hosting "Jazz Lives" for the first time. Bob introduced me to a wonderful music -- vintage jazz -- which has been an important part of my life ever since. After many years of listening, I now have the privilege of co-hosting "Jazz Lives," and those are going to be some mighty big shoes to fill. After I started cohosting, I could always count on a late night phone call from Bob, letting me know that he'd caught that week's show, and offering pointers and encouragement. What a wonderful man -- I will sure miss him.
