When much-loved “Nocturnal Transmissions” host Doctor Cosmo passed away in early April, it was decided soon thereafter that a fitting, lasting tribute would be to name the station’s Production Studio after him.
Since first coming to WPRB in 1991, Cosmo recorded bands of every possible shape, size and sound here and all future sessions will be engineered in a space bearing his name.
Today a laser-etched piece of metal was mounted outside of the studio door.
The Doctor Cosmo Production Studio
20th Floor, WPRB Communications Complex
In Memory Of George Mahlberg
I hope that future DJs will see this sign, wonder about the mustachioed madman looking back at them and ask a veteran member of the air staff who Doctor Cosmo was – opening their minds to the limitless possibilities of radio in the process.
