Updated May 11 with St. Louis on the Air conversation in remembrance of Rohde. Orginial story published May 9.

Gerry Rohde’s voice has been familiar to St. Louis Public Radio listeners for more than 30 years. He died this week of an unknown cause.

Geralf  “Gerry” Rohde was born in Bremen, Germany, in 1962. He grew up with his older sister, Geena Eaton, who shared his love for country music, especially Waylon Jennings. According to Eaton, Rohde loved the English language and spent a year in St. Louis as an exchange student in 1978 at Bayless High School.

On Saturday, April 15, St. Louis Public Radio Senior Producer Mary Edwards was inducted into the St. Louis Media Hall Of Fame, surrounded by her peers and media colleagues. Mary came to St. Louis Public Radio in 1974, just after finishing her Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She has played an integral role in shaping the programming that St. Louis Public Radio offers today, serving the station in a number of capacities over the years — primarily as producer of  St. Louis Public Radio’s local talk/call-in show, St. Louis on the Air, and producer of the live Saturday night broadcasts of the St. Louis Symphony.
