In Memoriam - Joe Bartolotta - 1958-2019
Today we learned of the passing of our friend Joe Bartolotta. We were lucky to work with him on many productions including "I Remember", Around the Corner with John McGivern, and most recently on Cook.Plate.Dine. He was a kind, generous man and will be greatly missed by Milwaukee PBS.

Joe, thank you for always be willing to be a part and making sure each production was a success.

Below are episodes Joe appeared in. May they bring you the same comfort and wonderful memories that they brought to us.
