'Young Tommy' D'Alesandro: Mayor In A Turbulent Time

Amy Davis/Baltimore Sun

Former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro, III, known locally as “Young Tommy” because he was the son of former Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr., passed away Sunday from complications of a stroke. He was 90.

WYPR’s senior news analyst emeritus Fraser Smith returned to our studios today to join news director Joel McCord to talk about “Young Tommy.”

Joel McCord is a trumpet player who learned early in life that that’s no way to make a living.
