My condolences go out to the family and friends, and one of my great friends, Mr. Edwin Clay who passed away on last Saturday. For the last several years, he served as General Manager of WCSU-FM Radio in Wilberforce Ohio, where BluesTime In The City has been on the schedule for many years. I’ve known Ed for over 40 years, and we served together on the Founding Board of The National Black Program Consortium, which brought more Black Programming to the PBS Television Network. He was with Ohio’s WOSU Public Television in Columbus Ohio at the time, and I was with Georgia Public Television in Atlanta Georgia. Ed did stints with Phil Donahue, NBC Sports, ESPN, you name it, Ed did it…..He was a character and a great musician…..Always had a smile on his face and a great line to say…….When you hear the line from the song, “Second Verse Same As The First.” think of Ed Clay. Only a few people know where it came from. Again, our condolences go out to his lovely wife Ilene, his daughter, his family and the WCSU Radio Family….Ed Clay was my boy……..
