    Word on the street is they're taking the remains to a taxidermist so he can still host Rockin' New Years Eve.

    Last night my wife mentioned Dick Clark's death and I expressed my ambivalence as I never felt any connection to him or sentimentality for him. Without missing a beat, she asked me why I hate America. I immediately thought of Cyburbia...

    Wow, wierd! I did not know he was close to death, but by sheer coincidence I deliberated between choosing 'The Weight' or 'Uncle John's Band' this morning for the jam of the day. My gut said pick 'The Weight', but ended up choosing 'Uncle John' instead. Maybe I shoulda listened to my gut?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Pete Fornatale, a Pioneer of FM Rock, Dies at 66

    a disc jockey who helped usher in a musical alternative to Top 40 AM radio in New York in the late 1960s and early 1970s, presenting progressive rock and long album tracks that AM stations wouldn’t touch and helping to give WNEW a major presence on the still-young FM dial

    Mr. Fornatale was at the forefront of the FM revolution, along with WNEW-FM colleagues like Scott Muni, Rosko, Vin Scelsa, Dennis Elsas, Jonathan Schwartz and Alison Steele (who called herself “the Nightbird”).
    Gedunker will remember him.

    Wow, three posts in a row in this thread. I guess when you get to a certain age, you spend an inordinate amount of time perusing the obits.
