Here is the OWH’s story on his passing.
If you listen to Omaha radio, you’ve no doubt heard Steve. He had a bombastic personality, and you could tell that he enjoyed what he did. He talked politics and culture and never left you wondering what his position was.
Omaha will miss his voice.
Steve contacted us not that long ago, and passed along — in what had become his trademark blogging voice, ALL CAPS — this compliment to us at Leavenworth Street:
I DON’T ALWAYS GUSH ABOUT MEDIA STUFF, BUT IN YOUR CASE, I’M MAKING AN EXCEPTION.
WE HAVE A REAL DEARTH OF MEANINGFUL, YET ENTERTAINING STUFF IN WRITING, THAT’S GENERATED AROUND HERE,
BUT WHAT YOU’RE DOING IS MOVING THE PERFORMANCE PEG OVER, SEVERAL NOTCHES.
KEEP IT UP, AND CALL OR E-ME IF YOU FEEL LIKE IT.
One of the best compliments we ever got.
We never got the chance appear on Steve’s show, but at least now he knows our identity.
Requiem in Pace.
