  1. Very sorry to hear this. Steve was a great help to me over the years as I waded into the morass of music clearance.

  2. Steve was one-in-a-million. . . always quick to return a phone call for help and with the usual upfront disclaimer that he was not a lawyer, he’d steer you in the right direction. He was my go-to guy when I first came to public television and he stayed that way for 26 years of my television career. I loved the guy. My condolences to his family and to the entire public tv system. His loss will be felt for many years to come.

  3. RIP Steve. I will always appreciate your politeness, candor and helpfulness during our once or twice a year “Hey Steve… What can you tell me about …” conversations. Steve was a font of not-easy-to-acquire institutional knowledge that will be sorely missed. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and am sorry I never knew him beyond our work related calls.
    Scott Houston, Host and Producer of The Piano Guy and Making Music on public television
