It was one year ago today that the Hudson Valley lost a great friend. I still remember how shocked we were to learn of the passing of Mark Cooper, known to everyone as Coop. 

Coop was my friend and colleague, and a member of our radio family. I always said Coop knew something about everything...he knew a lot about most things, and at least a little about the rest. He had a great passion for his family and his career. And I'm a better person for having known him. 

We miss you, Coop. Here is one of your favorites from Tom Waits.
