EAST PATCHOGUE - Long Islanders are mourning the loss today of a radio legend.

Jack Ellsworth broadcast on Long Island for 62 years. His show, "Memory In Melody," played all the classics of the day.

He died last night at the age of 91.

Dot, his wife and business partner, died eight weeks ago. His family said that after she died, he simply started to slip away.

Visitation for Ellsworth will be on Sunday. A memorial service will be held on Monday.
