During the summer of 1968, Joe McCauley died. He was a mainstay on WIP Radio for more than a quarter of a century with 14 years hosting the station's morning program. He was called, "The Morning Mayor" and ruled the airwaves during his rein.

Shortly after Joe's Death, WIP Radio aired a Tribute to Joe featuring the station's air personalities and it was introduced by Allan Hotlen, the station's program director.

One year earlier, a Temple University student Florence Weiss did a half-hour interview program called "In and Around." It aired over WRTI-FM, Temple's campus radio station. In the spring of 1967, she interviewed Joe McCauley.
