WMNR's Garth Dimon
WMNR Fine Arts Radio is saddened to note the passing of
Garth Dimon, longtime supporter, volunteer and broadcaster at the
station. Garth was born and raised in northern Wisconsin and played the
trombone, baritone horn and euphonium in his high school band. Further
interest in music was sparked when he attended Oberlin College where music was
part of campus life. Garth especially enjoyed attending the three
Cleveland Orchestra performances presented there each year.
Garth became part of the WMNR family in 1993 when, after
coming across the station on the radio, he reached out to us. His interest in
being part of WMNR arose from his "love of music, respect and appreciation
of WMNR and its programming." Says his wife Sally "Garth loved
WMNR because he got to choose what he played. Haydn was his
favorite. He was very humble, he liked people, he liked words and he liked
puns. WMNR was just perfect for him." He always ended his
Monday afternoon programs by saying Auf Wiederh?ren, German for "until we
talk again." Auf Wiederh?ren, Garth.
