Memorial service for Milt Rosenberg, Chicago's best ever interviewer

No one has been a consisting better interviewer in Chicago than Milton J. Rosenberg, who held forth for decades on evening broadcast on WGN radio. And after WGN, in one of its worst moves ever ended his run. Milt, however, continued on podcasts until his recent death.

If you don't think that he was the best interviewer in Chicago, check out his WGN archives:

Here are the details of the memorial service from his friend, Joe Morris:

The Memorial Service for the late Milton J. Rosenberg, who died on January 9, 2018, will be held on Friday, January 19, 2018, at 3:00 p.m. at the Joseph Bond Chapel on the Main Quadrangles of The University of Chicago.  A reception will follow immediately atmiltthe Quadrangle Club (walking distance from the chapel, at 1155 East 57th Street).

If you will attend, would you be kind enough to drop me a note by e-mail to let me know how many will be in your party?  I'd like to advise the family and the organizers so that appropriate arrangements for space and refreshments can be made.  Thank you for your kindness.
If you have received a similar invitation and request from another friend of the family, you need respond only to one of us.
Many thanks for your kindness.  I hope to see you at the Service on Friday.
JOSEPH  A.  MORRIS, Morris & De La Rosa, 6171 North Sheridan Road, No. 312 Chicago, Illinois  60660,  (312) 927-4680  (mobile),
