Passing of Joe LoRé – owner TV 47

Jeff and I were sad to hear this devastating news. Joe LoRé was a consummate professional and super nice guy to work with.  Joe and Tom Carpenter were always willing to listen to our suggestions about editing and audio on the two broadcasts we did for TV 47.  They did a bang up job as anyone knows that’s seen them.

He was always a welcoming and engaging dude; making us super relaxed in the studio giving way to best performance we could achieve.  What a crazy bunch and so fun to work with. We’ll miss it and you too, Joe.  Below is obit from our friend and on the onsite photog Tom Marnell.

R.I.P.  Mr.Joe

Jeff & Billy



Very sad to be sending out the news that the technical driving force behind the production of the show Atlanta Jazz and Blues, Mr. Joe LoRe, passed away last night. No details at this time.

Most of you have done at least one recording with Joe at the helm of camera operations in the studio. He was the founder and operator of TV47, a streaming TV show that aired the Atlanta Jazz and Blues show
several times a week. After Comcast 25 Studio closed Joe was the person responsible for keeping the show recording first at the West Side Cultural Arts Center and then at the fellowship hall of the Tucker Methodist Church. We had only done 4-5 recordings in that location before Joe Passed. Joe was a cameraman for the Sesame Street show for many years.

He was fun, creative and easy to work with. He will really be missed.

Production of the show has been put on hold and hopefully we will be up and running soon with another engineer. Not sure, at this point, what is going to happen to the tv47 show.

    Thank you guys so much for this. I didn’t know about this til today but it warms my heart that you honored my father. It was great running camera with him and watching you play.

      Hi Aaron,
      It was our pleasure and honor to work with your Dad. Coming into the Comcast Studio for our 1st Atlanta Jazz Blues Show (2014) it was obvious, as soon as we met Joe, we were the presence of a TV professional. He walked the walk and talked the talk. An experienced pro in his position could have been very nasty and impatient with us coming to he & Tom’s show for the first time.

      Instead, your Dad was courteous, friendly & funny and tried to cater to our needs. It shows, because he pulled a great performance out of us that day and we still get compliments on that taping, even today! We sure appreciate your father (and his baby TV47) and Tom Carpenter / Atlanta Jazz & Blues Show for the broadcasts we did over the years. We are proud of that and it was nice meeting and working with YOU Aaron on our taping in 2018.

      Jeff & I wish you all the luck in the world and we’ll miss your Pop…God Bless Joe LoRe’
      We are so,so sorry for your loss and to the world of broadcasting who lost a real talent.
      Our condolences and our very best,
      Jeff & Billy
      Jazz By Two
