Remembering Andy Kotowicz

Here at WKCO, we were saddened to hear of the untimely death of a Kenyon and WKCO alum, Andy Kotowicz. However, the degree to which his friends cared for him felt truly heartwarming when we received an e-mail from alums George Stone and David Bee who planned and held a memorial for David in the WKCO booth this past weekend. Andy, who graduated Kenyon in 1995 and went on to work as an executive at Sub Pop records, was described to us as having a truly inspirational love of music and WKCO. While in WKCO today we never got the chance to know Andy and surely cannot fully grasp the depth of loss felt by his friends and family, we are inspired by the bonds of community and love, strengthened by a mutual love of music and urge to spread that love, that continued to surround Andy after he graduated and left WKCO. We would like to thank David and George for teaching us this lesson and ask that everyone take a moment today to appreciate Andy’s life.
