Kahn Remembered for His Honesty, 'Soft Heart'
Ray Matuza worked with the late Leonard Kahn. He posts on the Radio World website:
I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Leonard Kahn. First impressions could be one of the “mad scientist” -- genius in nature but also a stubborn, righteous ornery character with a hair trigger temper who was never wrong and would do anything he could to make you believe his way was the right way and the only way!
BUT, having worked for him at Kahn Communications for well over 20 years I can attest that he was also one of the most honest and sincerely committed individuals I have met in my life. His tempestuousness was only counter balanced by his wife Ruth, who was always congenial,warm and friendly. She had once told my mom that Leonard had a tough exterior but a soft heart. After her passing he was never the same.
Hats off to the ‘ol boy, he’s probably up there arguing with God!
