Michael Ketter died last Sunday from complications from a car accident he had three and a half years ago.

As well as founding a Pitsburgh radio station, Ketter hosted many radio programs on shortwave station Wbcq including Here Now, World Microscope, You Are What You Think, and The Radio Reaction Theatre.

Ketter was a true renaissance man. He could cook, garden and fix things. He knew a lot about computers, radio, entertainment, popular culture, and current events. He never went along with others opinions concerning world events, but obtained his opinions by research, logic and experience.

On October 12, 2005, Ketter was involved in a car accident which put him in a coma. He never awoke from it and passed away on Sunday 17 May.
