Capt. Phil must have only been in his 20's when he did those weather reports from his boat on LI Sound in the summer. We hung on them before heading out in the Sailfish (or whatever).

I grew up hearing Captain Phil and the WNAB Coffee Break on my mother's kitchen radio in Stratford, CT. As a college student majoring in Broadcasting at Emerson College, Phil Cutting gave me my first job in broadcasting.

He was a true gentleman and professional. It was a honor and pleasure to have know him.

Met Phil about five years ago in a painting workshop I gave in Old Lyme, Ct.
This man had a lot of skills one of which was being a talented painter. Over the past five years we got together with artist friends for lunch. I will miss his
contributions to life and art, thanks Phil.

My condolences to the Cutting family. "Capt." Phil gave me my first job in the radio business in 1976 when he hired me to work for radio station WNLK Norwalk, CT. He allowed me countless opportunities to improve and advance my career which I will always remember.

I can't describe the sadness I feel at the passing of a man who was a formative factor in my life. Phil gave me my first job in commercial radio at WNAB in Bridgeport in the mid-60s. He helped develop my college radio amateurism into respectable professional skills that kept me employed in the industry into the 90s. I tried to emulate his on the air style and am grateful for both the kindness he showed and the stern way he dealt with me when I needed it. I'll always remember you Phil. My condolences to your family.
