Vale Angelo Mazzone 1933-2020
It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Angelo Mazzone.
Angelo was a much loved contributor to 3MDR as presenter of the weekly Italian Show.
Unfortunately Angelo had been unwell and unable to attend the studio to present his wonderful program since December last year. We all hoped that he would be back in the studio early in the year, then the covid19 pandemic took hold around the world. Italy was one of the hardest hit countries in the early stages of the pandemic and it was a shame Angelo couldn’t be on the airwaves to communicate with the local and not so local Italian community.
After undergoing some surgery in late May, Angelo went home from hospital and passed away at home with his family by his side on Monday 1st June, just days after his 87th Birthday
It was always a pleasure catching up with Angelo at the station as he prepared to present his weekly show featuring fine Italian opera music between his sport, weather, natural therapy and community news segments.
Angelo’s broadcasting experience was extensive, starting out at SBS before joining 3MDR some 16 years ago and continuing to serve the Italian community of the Dandenong Ranges and beyond through the community radio airwaves on 97.1FM.
Angelo’s fabulous charm and smile always brightened the day for the office staff and volunteers at 3MDR. And those wonderful tunes coming from the studio speakers were a weekly highlight.
At the request of Angelo’s family, former 3MDR President, Robert Gearon, will be presenting a tribute show to Angelo this Thursday 3pm 18th June in the Italian Show timeslot.
The 3MDR family extends sincere condolences to Angelo’s family, friends and loyal listeners.
