WJFF expresses our deep sympathies to the family and friends of Robert “Gandalf” Rosengard who succumbed to complications from the coronavirus on April 8, 2020.
Not only a beloved WJFF host, Gandalf was a long time volunteer, board member and past President of WJFF. He was also a long time school teacher in the Monticello school district. Gandalf retired from his weekly program in mid 2017, but stayed in contact with the station directly and through family and friends through the end.
Volunteer Kit Hulit will pay tribute to Gandalf on her program Thursday April, 23 beginning at 11am.

WJFF is humbled to be named in his obituary as one of the charities accepting gifts in his name. Of course, nothing will replace his unique the joy and inspiration he brought to others through the music he played on his show.
