Radio broadcaster Joel A. Spivak passed away at his home yesterday in Alexandria Virginia. Mr. Spivak worked at several east coast radio stations including WPRO in Providence RI., WWRC in Washington, and WWDB here in Philadelphia. He'll be remembered for his tagline, "This is Joel A. Spivak speaking ..." and his sometimes cranky demeanor on air. In real life Joel had a great sense of humor and very personable.
