Program host and WLIS WMRD & General Manager Don DeCesare proudly wearing a t-shirt from the 1st Annual Denise D'Asencenzo Foundation Walk To Cure Rare Diseases held at Quinnpic College in Hamden on April 30th. Don's radio stations have a long term relationship with WFSB-TV Channel 3
Just wanted everyone at the station to know how saddened I was to learn of the death of Phil Miken last week. My husband passed on Jan. 27th after a long illness and I'm still reeling from his loss . Vinnie had Vascular Dementia which eventually caused him to lose most of his cognitive ability these past 3 years as well as have hearing and seeing problems, 3 heart issues and loss of muscular control in his legs. I used to listen to Phil almost every morning until my husband's symptoms took over and he couldn't stand any radio or TV programming for the last 4 months of his life and I couldn't listen to my favorite show like Bob Muscatel Show, Phil Miken Show, Celtic Cafe, Anything Goes with Leis Avery. I was my husband's caregiver . He got COVID -Omicron on Dec. 29th and ended up at St. Mary's Hospital in Waterbury because there was no room in closer hospitals. My daughter and I both got the COVID a few days later and were unable to visit him because of it, ( Everyone including him had had the vaccine and follow ups.) Around the 20th of January, his doctor at St. Mary's was able to release him and declared him COVID free, but he could no longer walk or swallow. An ambulance brought him home from St. Mary's with 24/7 hospice care and he passed comfortably on Jan. 29th surrounded by Hospice and our family. Our grief has been overwhelming as we try to plan a Memorial Service to celebrate his life in late May. We have also lost 3 close friends and relatives since and I was just getting back to listen to my favorite shows on WLIS when I learned of Phil M's. passing and then hearing Barry Williams and other WLIS personalities express their feelings at Phil's passing made me know I had to express my sympathy to all who knew him at your Station. While I didn't always agree what Phil said, he and his guests always provided a interesting and thought provoking program and when he mentioned the loss of his wife (Annette) on a recent program I was listening to, I knew his pain and sensed that he wanted to be with her and I'm sure he now is. at peace with her again. I remember the program he had on more than once thru the years regarding the butterfly and hope if you plan on rebroadcasting any of his shows that very special one will be included. God bless all of you. Be well and be safe.
