Best part of the New York Times obit was the kicker: “Mr. Magic was often described as arrogant, although his on-the-air manner was smooth and warm,” wrote Douglas Martin, who really seemed to get it: “When he met Magic Johnson, the basketball great, he said, ‘The world is not big enough for two Magics.'” Which is pretty much the best possible thing that someone could say in that situation. Anyway, Miss Info, via Mr. Cee, has details on the funeral arrangements:
Mr Magic’s Funeral Arrangements:

WAKE 5PM: Interboro Funeral Home: 544 Evergreen Ave (Bushwick,Bklyn)

(thanks to Mr. Cee for the details)
And for good measure, check out WBLS and Marly Marl doing it for their old partner.
