MESSAGE FROM Darryl Braganza via Amin H Karim It is with great sadness that I inform my treasured friends in the Rawalpindi – Islamabad ,- Karachi Community that our dear friend Eddie Carrapiett passed away. Deepest sympathy to Eddie’s heartbroken wife Violet, his brother John and all his relations and friends. Eddie dear, rest In eternal peace. We will never forget you and always love you. Please pray for us. ( in 1960s Edward was the compere for a popular radio Pakistan program Western Music at 10 to . 10.30 pm most Patricians/Publicans were fans of the show in 60’s) ; may he Rest In Peace.
This is the saddest news I have come across. The news took me back to late 50s and those wonder years of western music on Radio Pakistan Karachi…
Eddie did Saturday late night western music show which I never ever did miss a single till it ended. It use to start at 10 PM for 30 minutes with no ads and playing the songs requested by post card mail to Eddie. He received hundreds. I was privileged to dial 70761 about 30 minutes before the show and request my song dedicated to my girl friend. Yawar Mehdi was the producer of the program.
Yes Eddie migrated in 70’s late and did programmes for BBC where he was projected by Ather Ali And Raza Ali Abedi
Such depressing and said news. May Allah Rest Edward Carripiet’s soul in Rest in peace at heaven Abode. Aameen
