Mayor William Peduto issued this statement on the passing of Porky Chedwick:
PITTSBURGH, PA - "Pittsburgh, and the world, lost a broadcasting legend today. Starting in the late 1940s at the station that later became WAMO, Porky give many R&B performers their first airplay and notice, and went on to become a visionary champion of rock and roll. I just saw Porky last weekend, and whatever we called him -- Daddio of the Raddio, Bossman, Your Platter Pushin' Poppa -- I am honored to have called him a friend."
