    June Kim
    With the death of June Kim, WBGO has lost a great volunteer and friend.  June was born in Harlem, raised in the Bronx ("Miss Paradise Farms" 1953), worked her full career at New York Telephone Co., and resided for many years in Teaneck.  June always spoke with pleasure of her close and extended family and friends, and -- as expressed in her Obituary, in capital letters -- JUNE LOVED JAZZ.  Long before young Jeremy Pelt came to New York, June was telling us about her trumpet-playing nephew.   We at WBGO who knew June are very fortunate, and share in the sadness of losing her.  In Volunteer Co-ordinator Sylvia Brewer's words, "June was a wonderful, classy lady – her smile, and love for the music will always be remembered."
