Al Snyder, Host of Uncle Al's Music Wearhouse dies at 72.
Al Snyder, one of finest members of the Cruisin' 92.1 Family, died on Thursday March 23rd at the age of 72. Born in Philadelphia, PA, Al went to John Bartman High School before he went on to study in Widener University and Temple University. Al came on Cruisin' 92.1 back on November of 2013 with his show called "Uncle Al's Music Warehouse." The show would come on Friday Nights at 11 PM from 2013 to 2020 and on Friday Nights at 8 PM since 2020.
I had the honor and the privileges of working with Al Snyder for the the past 10 years and I can tell you first hand that Al was a nice, caring, warm-hearted man you would ever want to meet. During our time doing his show, he would allow me a few minutes before he would allow me to talk about our favorite sport which is baseball, practically the Phillies. During the Oscar season, he would allow me to make my predictions on the air. Al is the man that you would lean towards during your difficult times. During the Covid-19 pandemic when most of the places would be in lockdowns, I would call him on a weekly basis and talk about life in general. I don't know if I would have made through the toughest time of the pandemic if it weren't for him.
One the favorite times that Al Snyder love other than baseball and music is car festival events. Whenever there is a Car events, you can always count on him to show up and bring you joy. In closing, I will say about Al Snyder: There will never be another man who lights up your day more than him. In Al's words when he wraps up his show "The warehouse doors are closed and the lights are out. Everyone be safe and don't touch that dial. Keep it at Cruisin' 92.1 the station with the most from coast to coast."
