Tom Mazza's Last Interview?

Posted on August 13, 2012

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- David Bastian of Towne Livery in Orchard Park, N.Y. has circulated via Twitter on Monday evening an audio archive of an interview he had with Tom Mazza on June 9, 2011, shortly before Mazza lost his voice and eventually was diagnosed with ALS that led to his death in Philadelphia on Aug. 11, 2012.

Bastian had just started his weekly program, "The Limo Show," on BlogTalkRadio.com which features an interview every week with an industry figure. He mentioned the interview initially only got a few hundred listens because the radio program was still getting established. Bastian told LCT he recalled Mazza apologizing during the interview for his hoarse voice. You can hear the interview in its entirety here.

    It is a sad day to see a Real World Industry leader pass. I have been involved in several different industries over my career, and Tom Mazza was simply the best I have ever had the pleasure to work with. The limousine industry and its people will sorely miss Tom Mazza.
