Mike Waters Remembered NPR's Susan Stamberg remembers her colleague, Mike Waters, who died yesterday at age 69. He hosted this program from 1971 to 1974, part of that time as co-host with Stamberg. Waters had a rich, deep voice. It was said "he had a cathedral in his head." We hear some his work -- include a skit in which a sunrise is "directed" by Waters as an archangel.
