Legendary Austin radio personality Larry Monroe has died.

Monroe worked at Austin NPR affiliate KUT for nearly 30 years.  He hosted the long-running Blue Monday program in addition to Phil Music, Texas Radio and Segway City, KUT says on its website.

Recently he worked at KDRP 100.1, a non-profit community radio station in Dripping Springs. 

"We are at a loss for words because Larry was always the one who gave them to us, words.  He's a legend, plain and simple, a brother and a friend," said KDRP station founder Daryl O'Neal.

According to the radio station's website, Monroe's death was sudden and unexpected. Services have not been arranged.

Monroe was a well-known part of the Austin music scene. He was friends with Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams and Townes Van Zandt among others. He spoke at Van Zandt's funeral.

Monroe was 71.
