Hundreds attend wake of NH radio personality Andy Blacksmith


SAUGUS, MA- Hundreds attended the wake of beloved Granite State radio personality Andy Blacksmith in his hometown of Saugus, Massachusetts.

The long-time co-host of iHeart Radio's "Greg and the Morning Buzz" often spoke about his heart condition, urging listeners to become organ donors. Blacksmith died over the weekend waiting for a heart transplant.

Many who grew up with him know him by his given name, Stephen Celata. One of his best friends, Eric Conant, says he never got used to calling him Andy.

"I think that he gave too much, he gave too much of his heart. I think that's what did him in in the end. He was just so generous, he loved giving," Conant said.

Even in death, Blacksmith continues to give. As an organ donor, he is already changing the lives of others.

The family has asked in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Life New England at www.neob.org.
