Ken Reich–in memoriam

Former Times reporter and columnist Kenneth Reich, who died in his sleep Monday.
This is a recording of Ken’s memorial service, held July 3, 2008, at Mount Sinai, Hollywood Hills. This is a field recording and I’ve reduced it to monaural for streaming purposes, so it’s a lo-fi experience.  The speakers were Rabbi Sheldon Pennes, Ken’s longtime friend Anton Calleia, former Times Sports Editor Bill Dwyre and Ken’s son, David.

And I couldn’t resist posting this sound clip from a 2006 gathering of the Old Farts of The Times on its 30th anniversary. The speakers are moderator Jerry Clark, Ken Reich, former Times National Editor Ed Guthman and Only in L.A. columnist Steve Harvey, discussing former President Nixon’s "Enemies List" and former Times political reporter Richard Bergholz, who had recently died.
