Philly Fans Remember Joe "Butter" Tamburro.


The WDAS website was flooded with comments from fans of the man they called "Butterball." Tamburro passed away Friday at age 70. The station website said, "we are honoring his memory by playing the music and the artists that he broke. RIP to our good friend, legendary broadcaster, civil rights leader, the soul of the station for 50 years and Philly icon, Butter. We'll miss you dearly." That was followed by hundreds of comments, shares and thumbs up via Facebook. Tamburro is survived by his wife, five children and five grandchildren.
