Norman Pellegrini, 79, program director of Chicago classical station WFMT 98.7, died Thurs., July 2, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chicago. Pellegrini first joined WFMT in 1951, the year it signed on, when it was on 105.9 with call letters WOAK. He had worked at the station for 43 years, much of that time with general manager Ray Nordstrand, who predeceased him in 2005. Together they did the well-known Saturday-night program The Midnight Special.
