Tim Aher, onetime program director at WHPK and tireless promoter of jarring music, died suddenly on Sunday, February 17, at the age of 25. A student of Notre Dame's law school, he was living in London as part of a study-abroad program. At the WHPK site there's an obituary and a link to a photo album compiled by friends. The article linked to his name at the start of this post has more information about his passion for community service and his legal aid work on behalf of AIDS patients and the poor. This 2002 Reader article by Liz Armstrong gives a glimpse into his love for what he jokingly called "marginalized subgenres." Further information (and beautiful eulogies) can be found at this memorial blog. He will be missed.
