  2. CandleImageDanny was a dear sweet soul. We spent a lot of time together at WRAS and the Signal.
    A calm sweetness is how I remember his demeanor. He never had a harsh word for or about anyone.
    We lost touch as friends often do, but his kindness stays with me.
    I’m heartbroken to learn of his death. My thoughts are with everyone who cared for Danny.

  3. I met Danny about 1980. He was a busy photographer and videographer and very talented. He worked with my group, The Raves, for several years on photo shoots, videos and he directed a TV show. He was a great friend and is missed.

  4. I’ve known Danny since 1976 from Ga State and WRAS, and we had stayed in touch over the decades through station reunions and events. We had just exchanged emails in January of this year, as it was WRAS’ 50th anniversary. He was well loved by all who knew him and will be missed. My deepest condolences to Danny’s family.

  5. CandleImageI met Danny when he was at WRAS and had his program, Film Focus. I worked at an ad agency and some of our clients were movie companies, so I took guests to his show. We became friends and sometimes hung out at his apartment or met at clubs to hear music. Later when he became a photographer, I went to his art openings. Over the years we would email, and he would send me the most glorious images. He was a kind, smart, poetic, happily Irish, talented man. I will remember him fondly.
